You need to get the schemtics for the AC unit, do some research on ethernet shields and temperature sensors.

What kind of air conditioner? What kind of voltage/power are we talking about working with (not that you'll be working directly with the unit, hopefully - but it is something to know about)...?

I will not respond to Arduino help PM's from random forum users; if you have such a question, start a new topic thread.

If the air conditioning unit has a remote control, you can program your Arduino to send the right IR commands to start/stop/adjust the unit.

An arduino with an ethernet shield and a relay like below should give basic on/off control.

Consider the daffodil. And while you're doing that, I'll be over here, looking through your stuff.   smiley-cool

Consider a wifi shield instead of ethernet if you don't want to run cable. They are more pricey though.
