Due to the fact there aren’t any available networking modules I thought I’d try to build one from supported hardware. Here’s what I have done and it does NOT work so I’m looking for any guidance.
FEZ Panda - Firmware 1.7
WIZnet811MJ - found here: http://www.sparkfun.com/products/9473
(I chose this because it has the WIZ5100 chipset)
Ethernet Shield - found here: http://www.ladyada.net/make/eshield/index.html
(I chose this since it’s meant for the 811MJ/WIZ5100 chips and it’s supported on arduino)
I followed the directions for building the shield. I attached the built shield with the 811MJ stacked on it and used the basic website code from the FEZ Ethernet Shield PDF. I’ve also tried others with no avail. So I’m wondering if I’m the only person who has tried this and or is there a way to make it work. I have also tried the “bent reset pin” option with no change. I know that the shield electronically is working since the RJ45 LED’s flicker when a network cable is plugged in.
When I deploy the web code the onboard LED becomes dim but stays lit.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
