Re: WiFly Shield code library alpha 2 release

but when i enter "get ip" it shows "0.0.0.0:2000" which means my router did not assign any IP to the wifly. DHCP is enabled on my router. when i enter "show net" one of the line shows that "DHCP=FAIL" To me this suggests there's an issue with how your router's DHCP implementation operates--or how t...

Does the Blink sketch actually get uploaded successfully and run?

I would enquire of your friend if anything happened to the board while it was in their possession. :)

In my own defense, I point out that the Arduino site does say: "* I2C: 4 (SDA) and 5 (SCL). Support I2C (TWI) communication using the Wire library." Hee, hee, it doesn't anymore. :) (Thanks to an extremely fast turn around on this bug report .) But I'm glad you pointed it out originally so it could...

Hi, Is it possible to use the WiFly shield to receive UDP packets like with the Ethernet shield? Short answer: sort of, but not really. The UDP.c / UDP.h files were created for use with the Ethernet shield and not the WiFly shield, so they don't appear to work natively. I've tried googling this, and...

FWLIW, I do not believe A4 and A5 are the pins standardly used for I2C; I believe I2C is standardly implemented on digital pins 4 and 5. (See the same reference.) A4 and A5 are the standard pins (SDA & SCL) used for I2C, see: http://www.arduino.cc/en/Hacking/PinMapping168 Although, that Uno page do...

Hi... ive got the Alpha 1 release of the Wifly Shield Library. Note that the latest release version is now Alpha 2.

Free Day this year is being run a bit different to last year so you can find the details in this Free Day news post.

You can check out the current news post for another promo video too. :)

Unfortunately, I don't have much experience with micro controllers besides the Arduino, and that's little beyond the inventors kit, and I don't want to be using an Arduino for this, because they're rather expensive. I would suggest that you prototype your hardware and code using your Arduino as you...

Hi, Having the exact same problem. I tried different baud rates, still get garbage after the chip says 'Bridge successful'. Can you please try installing the Alpha 2 library, then use the "HardwareFactoryReset" tool included. Once you've done that can you then try the 'SpiUartTerminal' tool included...

I have my Wifly Shield mounted on a MEGA 1280 and re-circuited the 10,11,12,and 13 pins to 53,51,50,52. Can anyone else comment on the Mega use?

oh and if you use the Sparkfun WiFly library you need to edit spi.h Just a quick note to say that as of Alpha 2 of the WiFly library you don't need to make this edit. (This fact isn't documented in the Alpha 2 release as I only just realised we got the functionality "for free" with a recent change....

Have you seen the Accelerometer and Gyro Buying Guide ? It might help you make a selection. I used the ADXL335 for the Earthquake Data Logger because it communicates with analog rather than digital signals which made it easier to get started with. I also found code online to read and graph the outpu...
