I don't understand what you mean by "is the WiFly pin broken out on the shield", could you please explain in more detail.StaticDet5 wrote:Is the WiFly pin broken out on the shield? Looking at the schematics, I don't see where it is broken out. Heck, I can't even see the pins.
It's worth keeping them in the loop as they can do things we can't and may have additional information.I haven't contact SFE tech support yet. I'm trying to exhaust the experts in the subject (You folks).
Indicators of what?Are there any indicators on the actual WiFly board itself?
Yes. I've got a number of WiFly boards I use for developing the WiFly library with and they all "just worked" (well, with the library written, at least ). (Although early on I did have one board which was the earliest revision stop working--seemingly something to do with SPI UART--but since then haven't had any problems with that.)Honestly, have you folks have the experience that you plug the shield into the Arduino, and it just "works"?
Ah, no, not as far as I know.StaticDet5 wrote:Are there any indicators on the WiFly board itself (not the yellow, green, blue, and red on the shield)?
The most recent version breaks out the reset pin--there will be a date on the underside of the PCB if it's the latest version.Is the WiFly board's reset pin broken out on the shield? It doesn't look like it on the schematic, and I can't see any way to get to it with the board mounted to the shield.
Through telnet, yes. Through SSH, probably not. (Unless you could port a SSH library to the AVR. )pzgordon wrote:I was wondering if it is possible to have the WiFly connect to a server through telnet or ssh?
You could also write a custom server that performed a similar task if you didn't want to use telnet.What I would be hoping for it to do would be to connect to a laptop (macbook) and run a and launch an application.
Looking at these, you might have a clash with the pins that are being used:soelen wrote:if I remove WifLy.begin();, the motors are working again (the wifly of course not anymore)
Do you have any idea what the problem could be? I am all out of ideas again....

I am assuming this line is not returning, its waitForResponse("Listen on ") and never getting a response from the WiFly.
follower wrote:The code to detect connection failure hasn't been written--the code is just hanging because it's not getting the expected response. If it gets as far as the join method call then I would think it is actually communicating with the module okay.
follower wrote:My suggestion is to remove the call to join entirely and just let the code fall through to the loop(). At that point you should be able to send commands directly from the serial console.
