we will have a laptop connected to it at all times
A lot of people said to downgrade the IDE and it will work, but unless you need to do a clean install that's not working for me either.
It connects to my WAP network at home just fine, and states its MAC address and IP.
Let me introduce myself... My name is Dan, and I work for Astrium, an aerospace engineering company who mainly produce satellites. We are the largest space company in Europe & 3rd largest in the world.
We decided we'd make use of the WiFi shield and create our own webpage that people can view the sensor readings on at the science fair (we will have a laptop connected to it at all times).
So what now? Do I need to upgrade the firmware on the WiFi shield or Mega, is that my only option? I can't understand why it's not working. This is one of the last things we need to do but unfortunately crucial to the whole project!
