 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

It happened that when connecting the Arduino Ethernet Module to the network, the device will automatically turn off. When I returned to disconnect and connect (several times), just lit the red light "ON" trailed off and seemed dead.
But when I disconnect the Ethernet module, the arduino returned to work.
I have reviewed and pins are properly connected.
That I can do to make the ethernet module working again?

Maybe your power source is too weak to power both the Arduino and the Ethernet Shield.  What power source are you using?

I don't know how much power the Ethernet Shield draws but the USB input is limited to 500 mA.  I'd try an external power adapter (7-9V  and roughly 1000 mA).
