IoT Labs WiFi Module Production Run #2


Since there seems to be a lot of interest in the module this is the official announcement for production run #2. The cost of the module is $58.00 (US) and shipping is a flat rate of $7.00 (US) to the continental US and $25.00 (US) to all other countries.

The following forum members (sorry if I missed anyone) have expressed interest in the past to purchase a module. If you are still interested please send me a private message with your full mailing address and the number of modules and type of antenna (on-board or external). The external version does not include an antenna, only the connector.

Please respond by 12/31/2014. Then I will send you an invoice via Paypal and will order the parts after the invoice is paid in full. If everyone pays before 1/10/2015 I will ship by 1/31/2015.

If interested you can download the SDK now from


@ munderhill - Which version would this be, if I look at the installer.exe version it mentions 1.0.2 I already have 1.0.3 installed … ??


@ PiWi - You have the latest. I will check the website to see what the issue is. I mainly posted the link for those who do not currently own a module and want to look at the help file and examples. I will be releasing v1.1 in January.


Only 4 more boards available in this run, all with on-board antennas! I will close the run when those are spoken for.


Put me down for one for testing.


You still have be down for one I hope.


@ Jason - I do indeed!


I have 4 WiFi modules with onboard antennas ready to ship! Get’em while they last!


I’ll take one!


Sent you some money…


Only 2 more left… :dance:


@ munderhill - any updates on the sdk, I’m on 1.0.3 ?


@ PiWi - v1.1 is imminent! :wink:


I just received notification of an update to the BG WiFi SDK to 1.3.0 (beta). Are the modules field updateable? I seem to recall that this SDK might have SSL in it. Fingers crossed.


@ Jason - You can find that in the software release section on this page

Good catch - :clap:


Is that a yes ? then @ munderhill - there goes the vacation :whistle:


@ munderhill - And finally … your test …

Man, this was an adventure … first the PC gone and then after setting VS2013 with NetMf and gadgeteer and GHI and … I finally could load my project only to run into a misterious number accompanied with misterious error (see first image) and here for the applied solution on v4.3 in my case. So I was able to copy over the MetaDataProcessor.exe.config to a folder where the same named executable is and voila VS2013 loaded, compiled, eh build and deployed a plain NetMf binary to my nice little spider on All done on NetMf and gadgeteer and GHI’s latest SDK … No further code changes needed, the original was made in VS2015.

@ Jason - In the IotLabs SDK you’ll find some nice methods like StartTcpServer or even a StartUdpServer and much more … and I heard a rumour that there is even more to come …

@ PiWi - Thanks for running the test and I am glad the module works on the Spider. I ordered one yesterday to have it to test with in the future.


@ munderhill - Huh, you order your own wifi modules … :whistle:


I think he means Spider…
