That looks nice! Seems like you won the race against the long-time-announced-but-not-yet-released Arduino Ethernet...

Hi beer lover!

What are the requirements for your display? Do you want to output Using an LCD is cheap and straightforward using your Arduino. This might give you a good start:

Haha, cool. Good luck! I doubt that it will be an easy solution. They probably jammed everything on one PCB for space reasons. I found this tutorial you might like:

Depends on how much engineering you would like to do yourself.

If it should be a plug&play approach, then the chip alone won't do I guess. If you're lucky then the chip is on it's own board together with the antenna and so on. I did the same thing with an Apple Airport Express - it has all its WiFi components on one board that can be driven with 3.3V. I used the Ethernet port on it to connect it to my ethernet shield and bring my Arduino online with 802.11n speed  smiley

Thanks for the replies, David and mellis.

The problem I see is that people will post hardware-related questions in the "topics" section. For example, I could post a motor question both in the "robotics" and the "motors, mechanics and power" category. The categories of the two sections are overlapping to quite a big extent I'm afraid. Would only make sense if the posts are tagged with "motors", "robotics" etc. and the different categories are just different entry points to the same forum posts.

So, maybe it would already help to make sure that there is no danger of overlapping topics? The e-textile example you mention makes sense and I agree that it's good to have a dedicated area for such things.

I second macegr's comment about the topics section. It's not clear whether it's for questions or for exhibition of projects in the respective categories.

Why not change the section title to something more meaningful than "topics"?

Sorry for the delay...

I just made the changes as you described, using Arduino 022. Works like a charm! Thanks toffe82.

At the moment I'm fine with changing standard libraries for my project - but I agree, it would be nice to have a non-invasive solution to this in the future!

Hi toffe82

just realized that I've started a second topic although you already asked the same question here:

http://www.arduino.cc/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1286641287

Actually, I though that you're going to be the one that solves the problem  smiley I've been using your modifications for spi.h in Arduino 0018 without any problems. I hope that someone has a hint?
