 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I would like to know where I can change the slave select pin values for the ethernet shield and sd card in the libraries.

I would like to alternate pins than the defaults.

I know about keeping the NSS pin as output, 10/53..

Thanks smiley

you can bend the SS pins of the shield a bit and connect it to any other. By far the easiest way and if done carefully it can be undone too.

Be sure the ethernet shield is the top shield smiley

I found where to change the sd card pin in 'Sd2PinMap.h'
uint8_t const SS_PIN = 53;

I can't seem to find where to change it in the ethernet library

try - C:\Program Files (x86)\arduino-1.0\libraries\Ethernet\utility\w5100.h - [windows path] - at the end there is a hardcoded initSS() depending on the MCU.
