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...

Re: Arduino MEGA 1280 problem? Tx Rx light not blinking.

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. :)

Nope, that was great! I definitely learned from it--thanks for taking the time to write the explanation.

Re: Using 3V3 I2C devices on a shield

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...

Re: UDP Communication using WiFly

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...

Re: Using 3V3 I2C devices on a shield

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...

Re: Speed baby Speed !

Hi... ive got the Alpha 1 release of the Wifly Shield Library. Note that the latest release version is now Alpha 2. If anyone has been able to up the baudrate any pointers would be great :) If you feel like using the version of the code that is in the WiFly source repository the functionality for ch...

Re: Beginner attempting Electric Dice

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...

Re: WiFly Shield code library alpha 1 release (also SPI UART)

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...

Re: WiFly Shield code library alpha 2 release

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? This question reminded me I still haven't tested with a Mega and I don't have one with me right now to verify. I have since verified release Alpha 2 of th...

Re: WiFly Shield Compatibility w/ Arduino Mega

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....

Re: Accelerometer

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...
