I am new to arduino wifi. I bought this module and planned to integrate it with the weather shield. However, I realized it has the original non R3 layout! I cannot put the weather shield on top of the wifely shield! Unless I cut the legs of the additional two legs on the weather shield R3 layout. But doesn’t that defeat the purpose of shields if I want to put something more in between?
Why is the wifi shield esp8266 only $14 dollars while it has R3 layout and can connect to wireless n? While this $69 wifly shield does not? I am new to wireless connectivity so please correct me as logic tells me I may not be correct here.
Is this a good shield for beginners to start with wifi projects?
