I have tried to find and follow through the various WiFi related discussions on the forum, in the tutotials and in the ebook. I understand having the network stack in a module as opposed to resident in the Panda.
For Ethernet, GHIElectronics.NETMF.W5100 provides a wrapper that provides an interface similar to the .NET sockets interface and hides the details of the interface to the ethernet module.
I have looked at the Connect Shield and WiFi bridge approach but that seems to be bulky and a bit of a kludge. I was hoping for something a little more elegent.
So for WiFi I am looking at either the new XBEE WiFi module (I currently have XBEE in various projects and so it would be easy to swap hardware) or either the WiFly Shield or new XBEE footprint module from Sparkfun.
So my question: Am I correct in my understanding that there is no wrapper similar to that provided by GHI for ethernet and so I will need to understand and implement the interface to whichever module I decide to use?
I conducted a search of all the usual places where I find code that I can use. I did not find anything. Does anyone know of anything that I failed to find?
