That works well; thanks.

Wow, excellent!  This worked for me.  Now I know for sure I'm connecting to the net, can get on with things.

Thanks Zoomcat

Updated client test code that minimizes network configuration in the code.

//zoomkat 9-22-12
//simple client test
//for use with IDE 1.0.1
//with DNS, DHCP, and Host
//open serial monitor and send an e to test
//for use with W5100 based ethernet shields
//remove SD card if inserted

#include <SPI.h>
#include <Ethernet.h>

byte mac[] = { 0xDE, 0xAD, 0xBE, 0xEF, 0xFE, 0xED }; //physical mac address

char serverName[] = ""; // zoomkat's test web page server
EthernetClient client;


void setup(){

  if (Ethernet.begin(mac) == 0) {
    Serial.println("Failed to configure Ethernet using DHCP");
    // no point in carrying on, so do nothing forevermore:

  Serial.println("Better client test 9/22/12"); // so I can keep track of what is loaded
  Serial.println("Send an e in serial monitor to test"); // what to do to test

void loop(){
  // check for serial input
  if (Serial.available() > 0) //if something in serial buffer
    byte inChar; // sets inChar as a byte
    inChar =; //gets byte from buffer
    if(inChar == 'e') // checks to see byte is an e
      sendGET(); // call sendGET function below when byte is an e


void sendGET() //client function to send/receive GET request data.
  if (client.connect(serverName, 80)) {  //starts client connection, checks for connection
    client.println("GET /~shb/arduino.txt HTTP/1.0"); //download text
    client.println(); //end of get request
  else {
    Serial.println("connection failed"); //error message if no client connect

  while(client.connected() && !client.available()) delay(1); //waits for data
  while (client.connected() || client.available()) { //connected or data available
    char c =; //gets byte from ethernet buffer
    Serial.print(c); //prints byte to serial monitor

  client.stop(); //stop client

I used php, javascript, ajax, cURL across two servers to solve this challenge.
