As you can read in a lot of topics, this chip becomes hot, and the side-effect: consumes also a lot of power.
It's definitaly the W5100 chip that becomes extremely hot and uses a lot of power (I will try to measure this tonight, but I think around 4 W)
Is it realy necessary to stop the power to this chip, can't I just disable the chip via CS/SS pin (bring pin 10 HIGH) ?
