Does anyone have a suggestion to get started?
So if someone knows something more specific, come with tips.
QuoteSo if someone knows something more specific, come with tips.Tip: You ordered the wrong ethernet shield for someone new to ethernet.
Use a Wiznet chip based board, so you can make use of the new, official Ethernet library with proper support for DHCP, DNS etc. You will thank yourself for it !
is there something in the Wiznet chip that makes it special?
Quoteis there something in the Wiznet chip that makes it special?Yes. Built in support for a lot of stuff that makes the ENCJ chip harder to use, since that stuff is done in software, rather than hardware.
Built in support for what?
SSL would be nice
If I use the ENCJ how hard is it going to be to use the ethernet libraries
Should I grab an earlier copy from the github repo? and if so what's the best one to get?
