Topic: Improving Ethernet Shield webpage !!! (Read 958 times) previous topic - next topic


Hello moderators, hope you read this because I think there is one page need to be update for people in arduino.cc.
I found some info here http://arduino.cc/en/Main/ArduinoEthernetShield need to be update.
Because it is written here:

Arduino communicates with both the W5100 and SD card using the SPI bus (through the ICSP header). This is on digital pins 11, 12, and 13 on the Duemilanove and pins 50, 51, and 52 on the Mega. On both boards, pin 10 is used to select the W5100 and pin 4 for the SD card. These pins cannot be used for general i/o. On the Mega, the hardware SS pin, 53, is not used to select either the W5100 or the SD card, but it must be kept as an output or the SPI interface won't work.

While in the schematic here: http://arduino.cc/en/uploads/Main/arduino-ethernet-shield-06-schematic.pdf
pin 11,12,13 is not labelled to any MISO,MOSI or SCK, so there will be misunderstood I guess.

Because in my Ethernet Shield, I just need to connect between ICSP to ICSP then pin 10 and pin 4 to make it work. There is no necessary for pin 11,12,13. This part need to be considered to be updated I think.

What do the forum and moderators think about it?
