Yes, i found it here and i  was happy (a few seconds....).

Then i read further and saw, that this also uses the WiFi Shield...but has this shield some special parts on it for WiFi connection or leads it simply out the depending pins ?

This is just like your BlueTooth device in the way that it use a Serial port. You will use a virtual Serial port in the case of a Uno or one of the 3 hardware Serial port in the case of a Méga or Due.

It does not use the Wifi Shield at all, it's a module. It could be link to your computer with the wire you see beside the device to the USB port, but it can also be connected directly to your Arduino, or other micro-controler, on the Serial port.

It's a neet device. I like it.

Aha, OK - now i understand that part.
USB to Serial and USB to TTL - sticks i have several here, so i think i order that piece from your other link...only 16 bucks (thats about 12 EUR for me) + some shipping seems OK then....

Nah is't 16$ shipping included ;)

Here's the pin out just incase you ever need it

And you can just use one of you WiFi antenna from a old WiFI PCI card that hang out in you closet. It's cut for 2,4ghz and it's all it need.

Yep it does just like the sample code i put on, probably more developed, it's a nrf enc gateway. It's just like WIFI, but it's not.
