Can not connected “FEZCerbot” and “WiFi RN171”


#1

On Visual Studio 2012 I added FEZCerbot and WiFi RN171 from Toolbox, but I cant connected this models. All other models can be connected just fine.

I am using GHI Software Package v4.2.

On the description page of the FEZ Cerbot https://www.ghielectronics.com/catalog/product/403 mentioned that WiFi RN171 can be added …six compatible sockets allow FEZ Cerbot to be extended in many ways. Add a WiFi RN171 module to control the robot…

Please help.

It seems that only K-sockets are accepted, which do not exist at Cerbot. However, according to the description the wifi module can be connected to K- and U-sockets.

The following manual implementation of the wifi-module (socket 3) accepts the modul:


public partial class Program
{
   Gadgeteer.Modules.GHIElectronics.WiFi_RN171 wifi;
               
   void ProgramStarted()
   {
      this.wifi = new GTM.GHIElectronics.WiFi_RN171(3);          
   }
}
