I found the same link and downloaded the “Wi-Fi Software Release SDK oWL© for 32-bit AVR” at:http://www.hd-wireless.se/index.php?option=com_vfm&Itemid=48&do=download&file=software_tools%7Cdrf104_v2.7.0_asf_2_3.tar.gz
This appears to have the libraries for interfacing with the HDG104 and some example code.
However, the example code appears to differ from what is running on the WiFi shield based on the debug messages / commands that are available via the FTDI port.
I am going to take this opportunity to unleash my frustration about this shield.
I have been discouraged with this board since I opened the box.
I paid close to $100 for hardware that has a crooked ICSP header on it and an external trace (wire) soldered on it.
I was willing to look past these items but issues on the software side have pushed me past the point of being understanding about this.
I know this product was just released, but I feel its release was rushed (or premature).
The picture at: http://arduino.cc/en/uploads/Main/ArduinoWiFiShield_Backb.jpg
…looks just like my shield.
However, I figured this picture was a prototype and not a disclaimer for what I would receive as a production board.
This does not match the quality I have come to expect from Arduino!
I believe Arduino should respin this board as soon as possible and provide a RMA replacement to the early adopters.
Back to the software side of things – what are the plans for releasing the source code that is running on this shield?
I hope this source will be released and released soon.
I am concerned about why the source was not made available right away when the board was launched.
Two possibilities come to mind:
1) Maybe Arduino has no plans for releasing this code. That would be very bad. I will give up on this shield if this is the case!
2) Maybe this is more evidence showing this board launch was premature and Arduino is planning on putting the code up but is not ready for some reason.
I am sure my post is going to hurt some feelings. However, these are questions that need to be answered.
I have a large number of official Arduino controllers and official Arduino shields.
I respect the work and finished product that has gone into all the other products I have purchased from Arduino.
Please help me feel the same about this shield.
