FEZ Hydra ENC28 Ethernet Problem

Hi Guys,

I have got another question:
I did a firmware update on the fez hydra. (I took the FEZ Hydra Ethernet Firmware)
It seems to be working when I was debugging the code.

But I can’t ping the fez hyra and can not send data over the network.
Even when I connect the fez hydra to my router not all status leds are blinking.

What is wrong. Thanks so far :slight_smile:


You need to post more information on what code you are using.

Hi Davef,

I tried out some network samples on this site.
First of all I checked, that I’ve got an valid IP adress.
After that I setup an Webserver:

using System;
using Microsoft.SPOT;
using System.Net;
using Gadgeteer.Networking;
using System.Threading;
using GHIElectronics;
using Gadgeteer;
using System.Net.Sockets;
using System.Text;
using Microsoft.SPOT.Net.NetworkInformation;

namespace Controller.Helper
    /// <summary>
    /// </summary>
    public class Server
        /// <summary>
        /// Initializes a new instance of the <see cref="Server"/> class.
        /// </summary>
        public Server(string ip, int port)
            Gadgeteer.Networking.WebServer.StartLocalServer(ip, port);
            WebEvent sayhello = WebServer.SetupWebEvent("HELLO");
            sayhello.WebEventReceived += new WebEvent.ReceivedWebEventHandler(sayHello_WebEventReceived);
            Debug.Print("WebServicer initialized.");

        void sayHello_WebEventReceived(string path, WebServer.HttpMethod method, Responder responder)

The strange thing is, that on my router not all leds are blinking.
Maybe its because of another module, which is connected in socket 4.
(I heard that socket 3 and 4 are sharing the spi-bus)

Thanks so far Davef.

Hi there, I am looking to connect a Hydra to the Internet. What Port does the ENC28 connect to on the Hydra. I am looking to call a bing service from a Hydra. The ENC28 is not showing up in my Gadgeteer designer toolbox in Visual Studio 2010. I can manually add in the reference to the ENC28 if I know which port it should connect to. Is it Port 3 or Port 4 and is there a conflict as indicated by the last post. Or if no go can somebody point me in the direction of Xbee connectivity using the Hydra. Many thanks.
