Topic: WebClient - connecting... connected disconnecting. (Read 108 times) previous topic - next topic


I just got an ethernet shield and wanted to try webclient example from library.

(WebServer works smoothly by the way)

When I opened Serial Monitor output was like this.



It has no problem connecting to google.com but somehow can't retrieve data.


Are you using a domain name as the server? If so, you need to evaluate the client.connect() return value differently. The only success return value is 1. The connect function will also return true if the domain name resolution fails (negative return value).
Code: [Select]
// replace this...
 if (client.connect(server, 80)) {

// ...with this
 if (client.connect(server, 80) == 1) {


I have the same issue here. client.connect is returning -1 "Time_out". I really don't know what is wrong.
DHCP is working and WebServer example is working. But WebClient code is not.

Anybody can help please....
