 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

the setup:
network shield on top, mega on the bottom, 32 i/o ports in-use (as outputs)

the dilemma:
every time a button on the "webpage" is pressed to control an i/o port, the entire page is refreshed/reloaded. normally that wouldn't be an issue, but my network seems to act weird. i have a video server that works like it should; streaming in real-time. but each time the arduino webpage is loaded, it's a crap shoot weather the whole thing loads all the way or not. in ie, it'll load some and stop loading after showing some code on-screen. on firefox, it times out with an error message mostly. on chrome, it loads what it can; sometimes just the head, sometimes the whole thing. i can still use the functions, but it's not what i programmed it to do.
(also: locally, it works perfectly. remotely, it has the problems)

i'll get code up in a bit. any alternatives to keeping the connection open full-time, or making sure the whole page always loads?

I'm not sure but has the String been fixed yet?

http://code.google.com/p/arduino/issues/detail?id=857

Could it be that?

192, 1, 1, 102  looks strange for a lan ip address (I'm use to 192.168.1.x). You might try putting  the static text in the F() macro, and don't reload the page.

yeah, the ip address is what i use around here. it works, so i'm not worried.

what you suggest sounds good. i'll look up some info on it, but would you happen to have any links or examples you could point me to? like i said, i'll be searching as well. thanks a bunch
