If this is the WiFly shield you have
then it uses SPI.

Do you want to add an Arduino to your robot? Are you going to interface your Arduino with the PIC? How (I2C, Tx/Rx)?
If this is the case, you have way too many challenges in your hands.
I would completely drop the PIC and replace it with the Arduino. Or get an Arduino-controlled robot. Have you ever used an Arduino before?

Before you go into details (controller chip etc), you need to understand the big picture. As I said, Arduino+WiFi shield could act as a web server that processes requests from your laptop (connected to the network) or smart phone (connected to the network through wifi).
You could test this setup without your vacuum cleaner in place, just to check how the commands get through. Then add your relay board to the arduino and modify the sketch to include them.
What kind of vacuum cleaner are you using? A roomba?

got my wifly connected to arduino pin for pin and now i'm running and it gets stuck on WiFly.begin();
Did you specify the correct credentials (ssid, password) for your wifi network?
Are you currently using the sparkfun wifly shield?

Cool board, I like it. An actual LED project using it would give some inspiration to potential customers. The TPIC595 seem to be able to drive multiple LEDs in series/parallel as long as the current does not exceed 100mA and the voltage is no more than 33V.
Keep up the great work!

There is a TwitterClient example in the Ethernet library coming with Arduino 1.0, very easy do adapt to your WiFly shield (WiFly library was adapted after the Ethernet library).

Good job. Got a schematic as well?

One way the vacuum cleaner can be controlled by your Arduino is through a relay. You can basically turn it on and off. Moving the vacuum cleaner around is a bit more challenging.
To send the commands to Arduino through the internet, you would need to run a web server on your it, either using the WiFi shield or the Ethernet shield. WiFi shield would make the device portable, if this is what you need.
As Arrch said, you should give more details on your project.

Is this smaller?
55  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Re: rotary encoder on: October 11, 2012, 02:10:54 pm
Sparkfun usually has some documentation and/or sample code for their products (links after the product description).
Did you check there?
56  Development / Other Hardware Development / Re: Seeeduino ADK supplied by 24 V on: October 11, 2012, 02:05:50 pm
You can insert your own external switching mode power supply between the 24V source and the seeeduino ADK.
They sell on ebay for less than $10 (depending on the current they can supply).
57  Development / Other Hardware Development / Re: which is best Wifi shield for arduino? on: October 11, 2012, 02:01:00 pm
Try the "official" arduino wifi shield:
Sparkfun sells one which is a bit cheaper:
If you run a web server on your arduino with the wifi shield, you can access it through your iPhone through the browser.

Delete the line(s) with DEBUGPRINT.
Did you set correctly the switch (on the back of the display) for CS2?
59  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Re: Arduino Client not able to Insert Data to a Cloud Server Instance on: October 09, 2012, 07:48:59 pm
From your code, I see you are trying to make an http request (GET).
Maybe the port number is not (the default) 80, so it needs to be specified.
The first step in debugging your code is to get a connection to the web server through your browser.
Is that your IP address? Are you running a web server on it?

I have just used a couple to make a wireless MIDI setup
Mubase, care to share?
