Hi !

Fist excuse me for my english ;)

I am using ethernet shield with library.

I am looking for a way to know in the skecth if the RJ45 jack is connected to the board.

How can I know if it is connected ?

Thanks !

Well, idea is not the same as solution ;-)

I'd have a look at the wiznet's datasheet and see if there is a status bit for media connect or link up/down or similar.
