Unfortunately, no, it doesn't help.
All sketches I've tried (examples as well as my own modified examples)work fine as long as I disconnect the shield, cycle power on the UNO,upload, then reconnect the shield.
I have the same issue as reported here and same Ethernet shield as nephtyz. Did the removal of the capacitor nearest the reset button in the image from 20th Dec 2015 solve the issue?
I have the same board , and same problem, did removing the (only) capacitor next to reset work?
Hi everybody.Quick solution that worked for me: cut (or bend out) the reset pin from the ethernet shield. No solder, no capacitor, nothingNow the long story:I had the ethernet shield working fine on an Arduino nano, with only the minimum connections made with jump wires. When I migrated to a Arduino Mega 2560 (I needed more RAM), and mounted the shield over, I couldn't flash it anymore. I did read the forums and the like, but I wasn't sure which capacitor to remove, nor the manual reset trick worked for me.So, in a short motorcycle ride, I realized that the shield worked on the nano without the reset connected. Thus I removed that pin and start uploading sketches happily.Good luck!
