This relates to the inability to do high level httpWebRequest reliably from a Panda II with the Fez Connect board.
I have found that I am spending %80 of my time dealing with networking, because I have to use sockets, and I have to build out masses of code to handle all the exceptions, address types, etc.
On Netduino, I spent ZERO time on networking. The native networking just works, works at a high level, and stays out of my way.
I am a hobby dude, with only a couple of hours a day for my embedded project work. I have a couple hundred $ of GHI gear, I hope to build a dozen of my boxes (when I get it done), and I love the support here in the GHI community.
But the networking stuff just doesn’t work, and I do not have days to make the sockets approach solid enough to use in real life. I have documented the issue fully on the thread linked above.
For me to roll out on Panda boards (the path I have been on), we need the high level networking to work %100.
Is there an ETA for this?
