Title: WiFi shield
Post by: khadkara on Apr 18, 2013, 07:28 pm
I have been relentlessly looking for a best arduino wireless shield. But, the choices are so much varying in price that it is very confusing on what to get. So, far i got WiShield 2.0 Amazon.com/$55, Wishield 3.0 /$62,Wireless Shield arduino.cc / €14.90 and Wireless Shield SD arduino.cc /€19.90. I almost bought from the (link to company selling counterfeit boards removed). But, I figured that it was a Chinese website,so I started to have second thoughts on it. I am thinking of a Networking project on arduino an I don't need the hardcore performance from the shield. Any suggestions on what to get?

Some Sensor that triggers some event. Now, report that event by taking some picture or just a message to my cellphone or to my social media. I am still just prototyping. So it's just a vague project I guess.

You might consider the below wifi shield. I don't have one, but others seem to have made successful projects using it. Seeed has a forum that might provide support if needed. The pdf user's manual is in a link at the below site also.
