Well i modified your server sketch to light up an LED over wifly, but the problem is due to the space restrictions on arduino, i can only place an 'on' and 'off' post button using html to display on the computer browser to operate the LED. If you put strings in "PROGMEM" you can have larger pages. ...

So far I've been using either the SPIUart sketch or the Factory Reset sketch to get things done. Am I correct in understanding that using the hardware factory reset sketch is what solved your initial problem with "junk characters"? Trying to get the client and/or server sketches to work has been a ...

You have the OpenLog board connected to the hardware serial pins 0 and 1? If that's the case, I don't understand why you have included NewSoftSerial in your test?

Have you tried swapping the RX/TX pins connected in case they are backwards?

Btw kudos to "follower" on a marvelous job with the wifly library. Thanks. :) I would like some advice on how to setup the wifly as a client, i know the library has an example on it, but i want to use my computer as a server to broadcast commands to the wifly, so far i am confused on how to go abou...

The arguments to the NewSoftSerial constructor should match your comments. At the moment you're asking the Arduino to perform software serial on the hardware serial pins.

Thanks Phillip, i grabbed the latest code but can can only get to 57600. Try the latest code from the GitHub repository, I've increased the clock speed used for SPI communication so that should improve things. Basically i'm getting data in via a USB Shield and wanting to shovel that outvia the Wifl...

Not all of the router security modes are supported. While that's true, AFAICT in the case above the network gets associated with okay but fails to provide an IP address via DHCP. I can't seem to set the port to 80. When I type "get ip", the WiFly says that it is on the correct IP and port 80, but w...

What can we do to thank you when your latest efforts have yielded results, right out of the box? :lol: Great! So I take it you got your shield working then? :) Did you use the hardware factory reset tool or did the examples in Alpha 2 "just work" for you when you used them? I just can't think of su...

The README in the Arduino Library link says to define it before you include the library but it doesn't do anything no matter where I put it. Any advice? Does your code look like this at the top of the sketch: #define FLIPDISPLAY #include <AlphaNumeric_Driver.h> I don't have the actual devices to te...

In my recent Earthquake Data Logger tutorial I discuss (in the "Writing the Software" section) a couple of possible options: Pachube and Nimbits.

You might like to take a look at those.

It's a bit disappointing. Is there another protocol that the WiFly supports that I can use to send small packets to the Arduino for processing (probably a max of 10-15 chars in one packet)? If it suits your purposes well enough and you could write the additional code to support it, you could probab...
