Ethernet on 4.2 MF Gadgeteer (FEZ Spider)

Hey guys,

I’m new to MF Gadgeteer, and I’m having trouble with conectivity using the Ethernet J11D module provided on the GHI Electronics kit.

Basically, I need a code that catch a number on a website ( , and the number will be the variable who will set the configuration of some pins.
The control of the pins itself I did successfully, but I`m having trouble with going to the internet and getting this number.

I just need to know where and what to put in the code to set internet, go through a website, and receive this number.

This is how my code looks like:

using System;
using System.Net;
using System.Net.Sockets;

using System.Collections;
using System.Threading;
using Microsoft.SPOT;
using Microsoft.SPOT.Presentation;
using Microsoft.SPOT.Presentation.Controls;
using Microsoft.SPOT.Presentation.Media;
using Microsoft.SPOT.Touch;
using Microsoft.SPOT.Net.NetworkInformation;

using System.IO;
using System.Text;
using Microsoft.SPOT.Net.Security;
using System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates;

//using Gadgeteer.Networking;
using GT = Gadgeteer;
using GTM = Gadgeteer.Modules;
using Gadgeteer.Modules.GHIElectronics;
using GTNet = Gadgeteer.Networking;

namespace Testpin
public partial class Program
GT.Interfaces.DigitalOutput ledControl3;
GT.Interfaces.DigitalOutput ledControl4;

    // This method is run when the mainboard is powered up or reset.   

    void ProgramStarted()
        GT.Socket socket = GT.Socket.GetSocket(11, true, null, null);

        ledControl3 = new GT.Interfaces.DigitalOutput(socket, GT.Socket.Pin.Three, false, null);
        ledControl4 = new GT.Interfaces.DigitalOutput(socket, GT.Socket.Pin.Four, false, null);

        int pino = 9;

        //caso 0 : Nothing happens

        if (pino == 0)


        //case 1 :  1 pin set

        if (pino == 1)
            //set pin 3


        //case 2 :  2 pin set

        if (pino == 2)
            //set pin 3 and 4
            Thread.Sleep(3000); //pause
            //acende pino4


In that code I set the “pino” to 9 ) , but actually I need the Gadgeteer to get this number on the provided website.

(the cases are from 1 to 9, I omitted the rest of the code here for simpicity purposes.)
