HiOk so it's got an external antenna and I've found a uk based supplier but this isn't plug and play is it? I need a shield, what do I need to connect it to a Duemilanove?
>All of the WiFly modules support WEP, WPA, and WPA2, including the more >expensive RN-131 shield you posted.Is this a comment about the note I had on unprotected networks? I saw that on a forum - is it not true?
when choosing, always go with the most popular/widely used. And that appears to be wifly.
For the adapter, make sure you get one with actual level converter (5v to 3.3v) chip, like thishttps://www.adafruit.com/products/126

I thought it was: Duemilanove -> xBee Shield -> WiFlyIs there something else that needs to be in there?
Yes you are correct, you just need the shield and the WiFly RN-XV. Resistor voltage dividers for 5V to 3.3V are fine. The diode solution on the sparkfun XBee shield is an example of a broken solution that does not work.
The shield you ordered looks like the same one from DFRobot. I have one and it works, although it reboots the arduino whenever the WiFly reboots, and I cut off pins 0 and 1 and soldered a couple of jumper wires to them so I could connect them to other pins (8 and 9) to use software serial.
