Hmm, your response makes me think my WiFly or Wireless shield is defective. Maybe both. I definitely made the mistake of forgetting to switch USB/Micro modes and leaving the WiFly attached to the shield, especially early on.
I also tried using SoftwareSerial, but it didn't work for me.How can I tell if I messed up my WiFly? Is this is a case of if it breaks, everything goes? Or is it possible that the RX/TX pins are defective? I am able to connect via telnet and I am getting power even though the pwr led is not on.Or alternatively how I can tell if I messed up my shield? It doesn't seem to be operating as described on the product page.I'm probably going to get a new shield at this point. Do you have any suggestions? I'm looking at the two options listed here (https://github.com/harlequin-tech/WiFlyHQ/wiki). But I am weary.Thanks.
