        void ProgramStarted()
            Modules added in the Program.gadgeteer designer view are used by typing 
            their name followed by a period, e.g.  button.  or  camera.
            Many modules generate useful events. Type +=<tab><tab> to add a handler to an event, e.g.:
                button.ButtonPressed +=<tab><tab>
            If you want to do something periodically, use a GT.Timer and handle its Tick event, e.g.:
                GT.Timer timer = new GT.Timer(1000); // every second (1000ms)
                timer.Tick +=<tab><tab>

            // Use Debug.Print to show messages in Visual Studio's "Output" window during debugging.

            wifi_RN171.HttpRequestReceived += new GTM.GHIElectronics.WiFi_RN171.HttpRequestReceivedHandler(wifi_RN171_HttpRequestReceived);


        void wifi_RN171_HttpRequestReceived(GTM.GHIElectronics.HttpStream request)
            string requestedURL = request.Request.URL;

            if (requestedURL == "/index.html")

                string document = "<html><head></head><body>HELLO! KG1 KG1 KG1 KG1 KG1 KG1 KG1 KG1 KG1</body></html>";
                request.Response.HeaderData["Content-type"] = "text/html";
                request.Response.HeaderData["Content-Length"] = document.Length.ToString();

                //All you have to do is send the document data through the response object.
                //Header data is automatically applied for you when you chose to send.

[ol]Replace the code on https://www.ghielectronics.com/docs/178/wifi-rn171-module with the code above.[/ol]
[ol]Check the IP address at your access point with telnet. See photo[/ol]
[ol]Study the Visual Studio environment. The Gadgeteer source code is unmodified. See photo.[/ol]
[ol]The browser output! Note the full address. See photo.[/ol]

Next find a way to use sockets.
Next RN171 to RN171 communication.
