Hi there,

Where do you specify the pin number??

When I open the serial monitor, I only see 'HTTP' transmitted..



2  Using Arduino / Programming Questions / External Editor Questions on: January 31, 2013, 11:53:21 am
Hi there,

I have seen a setting in Arduino IDE: 'use external editor' (I'm using the Macintosh platform)

but I have not (yet' found how to do that.

I checked the 'preferences' fiels, but could not understand how to setup thing so that I can use an external editor.

I found that if you ENable the 'use external editor', that the standard Arduino IDE editingwindows does not allow to edit anything anymore,
so does that mean that I just have to open the file in my editor.
I hoped that there would be a setting where, after starting de Arduino utiity, my own editor would automatically pop up, with the most current file.

Thanks for help/hints

3  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Arduino Ethernet board not running Blink on: January 29, 2013, 07:58:15 pm
Hello All,
I'm running into problems running Blink on an Arduino Ethernet board.
  • I'm using USB2Serial Light to load the board.
  • The correct driver appears to be loaded (Provider = Arduino LLC, Date = 11/15/2007, Ver. = 5.1.2600.0).
  • The Power Happy Lamp is on.  Powered from USB.
  • The USB cable is known good (works in other applications).
  • When I release the Reset button, the LED on Pin 13 lights, then fades off (not a solid On, then Off).
  • The upload appears to work (no errors).  As the Upload is happening, I see the Tx and Rx LEDs blinking on the USB2Serial.
  • After the upload, there is no change in the LED.  No blink, nothing.
  • If I power fail the board, Power and Pin 13 LED come on, Pin 13 LED Fades out, then nothing.

I haven't included any drivers for the Ethernet device in Blink.  Could this be hanging the code?
The documentation states "NB: Pins 10, 11, 12 and 13 are reserved for interfacing with the Ethernet module and should not be used otherwise."  On the schematic however, it looks like Pins 14 - 17 are actually used.

Can anyone see what I'm doing wrong?


The on-board LED on the 'Arduino Ethernet' is connected to pin 9, so put that value in the code (instead of 13) and Bob's Your Uncle!!
