Our project is still waiting for wifi ethernet adapter for Arduino, does anybody know if there's technical problems with the "coming on february 2011" product? What is the next choise to get wirelessly connected to ethernet, with reasonable efforts?

These products seems to be out of stock everywhere.

Thanks!

Cheers,
Kari

Hmm... my topics are not very popular, or I'm the only one who is wondering where the promised product are.

Should I start thinking about xBee istead of wireless ethernet?
Any recommendations are welcome.

Cheers,

There are a few wifi shields around already even if there's not an official arduino version.

Yes, I have seen WiFly mentioned every now and then. What is the difference between them? I only need something that has been tested and functional library is available, I have no skills to find solutions if problems appears.

Can you point me to other similar products? I don't know why they are so hard to find. Almost everybody is selling "out of stock".

Heh - you do - everyone does - you're on the forum now are you not? asking a question and trying to find a solution to the problem of where you can get a shield from.

Well, sure I have a skills to find, at least try to find, but many things seems be too hard to understand. I'm learning, slowly, but still.

Eventually there must wireless ethernet products available, it has been too quiet around wifi ethernet for arduino...

Hey folks, there are alternatives to the Wishield...

One example (shamelessly blowing my own horn) can be found at http://arduinology.tumblr.com/

It provides an Arduino library for the WiFly series from Roving Networks.  Sample includes a webserver.

It does work with the Sparkfun WiFly breakout board http://www.sparkfun.com/products/10050 , and should work with the updated RN174 available from suppliers such as Digikey. 

If you can do surface-mount soldering, then you can save half the price and get the bare WiFly chip from Sparkfun for about $35.
