I've just started learing more about electronics (Other than the regular soldering and diagram reading from school.) and I'm trying to use an ENC28J60 ethernet module from dealextreme, together with an Arduino Mega 2560 drom dealextreme as well. What my project is all about, is controlling an robot over WiFi using my Android phone (Having the arduino hooked up by cable to a router, and my phone to the router over WiFi.). But I've already gotten my head into the deep end of the pool.
The first problem is that I can't find any updated guides on how to connect the ethernet module to the Arduino itself. Pin configuration, libraries to use etc. One of the setups that I tried is from (http://www.geeetech.com/wiki/index.php/Arduino_ENC28J60_Ethernet_Module
), but that one doeasn't seem to work as of v1.0. The only thing that happens, is that the DI diod light up red on the ethernet module.
Other than that I've tried the deafult examples from the Arduino soeftware, but no luck there eather.
What do I do? I'm desperate for a solution, as I've done a mere 1% of this project during the last two months.
(Yes, I've tried to search the forum for a solution to this. But I've found none.)
