i have a ethernet shield and want to know the local IP address
then copy that program:
#include <SPI.h>
#include <Ethernet.h>

// Enter a MAC address for your controller below.
// Newer Ethernet shields have a MAC address printed on a sticker on the shield
byte mac[] = { 
  0x90, 0xA2, 0xDA, 0x00, 0x4F, 0xAC };

// Initialize the Ethernet client library
// with the IP address and port of the server
// that you want to connect to (port 80 is default for HTTP):
EthernetClient client;

void setup() {
  // start the serial library:
  Serial.begin(9600);
  // start the Ethernet connection:
  if (Ethernet.begin(mac) == 0) {
    Serial.println("Failed to configure Ethernet using DHCP");
    // no point in carrying on, so do nothing forevermore:
    for(;;)
      ;
  }
  // print your local IP address:
  Serial.println(Ethernet.localIP());

}

void loop() {

Is your Arduino connected to a router with an Ethernet cable?  Does the router show activity (usually a blinking light) on the Arduino's ethernet port when you reset the Arduino?

Same issue here. With dhcp the Ethernet.begin(mac) dies with no feedback. It seems even,  that it requires a power cycling to bring the Arduino back to ethernet live. I assume that this isn't just a software issue. Hopefully I am wrong

One of the things the below test code does is send the arduino ip address to the serial monitor.

If you are using IDE v1.0, then zoomkat covered one of the challenges:
http://code.google.com/p/arduino/issues/detail?id=605

The other is the SD card SPI. Do you have a microSD card in the slot?

Is your Arduino connected to a router with an Ethernet cable?  Does the router show activity (usually a blinking light) on the Arduino's ethernet port when you reset the Arduino?


i've conected my arduino ethernet shield to the computer via the etherenet cable since i do not have router and i am facing the same error : Failed to configure Ethernet using DHCP. the lights flash and the rx tx lights flash as well, im trying to setup my ethernet shield for the very first time and im still new to all this, i would greatly appreciate it if you could help me diagnose this problem

If you don't have a router that is supplying the DHCP service you will either have to use manual configuration or use something like "Internet Sharing" on your PC to make it act as a router with DHCP services.

thank you for the response  :D
i had to restart my machine, probably to reset the ethernet
and i used this code to test my connection and Woohoo! it worked with my static ip
here's the code i used to test

thank you once again  XD
i'd like to know how i can use it to connect it to my local wampserver with mysql so that i can store a cellnumber and serial number remotely.
I'm going to hook up a 4x3 keypad, 20x4 lcd in 4 bit mode, ethernet shield and the arduino uno r3.
any suggestions will be greatly appreciated

All that you need to do is change the GET request.

Stefan_28

mangtee... i tried your software... when i sent an'e' as requested it is telling me that i got disconnected.... do you have an idea why this can happen?
