Where did you get the latest wifi shield firmware?  Did you load the firmware from the "hardware" folder that was created when you installed IDE 1.0.5?

yes, I flashed the firmware from the hardware folder that was created when i installed ide 1.0.5... I am very sure the jumper wire near vin and A0 is not connected when i load the scannetwork script. Still, wifi shield not detected.

Hi ale16289, thanks for responding. I have tried the following methods and the problem still exist. I usually use batchisp to update my firmware and it usually does it without any errors. Is is ok for you to send me the working version of the firmware (wifiHD & wifi_nld) of your wifi shield? Also, are you using an external power source or just powering using usb.

@ale16289 - I tried flashing both firmwares but they didn't work. Could it be that my flashing method is wrong? I followed the instructions here http://arduino.cc/en/Hacking/WiFiShieldFirmwareUpgrading. Do I need an external power supply?

@cjdelphi - When I flash the wifi_dnld.elf the link led comes on for awhile before the data led turns on. Ran scannetwork sketch, 'wifi shield not present'. After flashing wifiHD.elf, totally no led on at all, same problem when running scannetwork.
