Hey there, got a question regarding Arduino Uno. I got a project from my superior in which I wanted to get data via ethernet, evaluate them and show the data on a screen. So I went with this setup after watching a tutorial online:
Arduino Uno + Logging Shield + Ethernet Shield (I am a beginner and this felt like building a lego tower but supposedly it should work).
Now I connected the Arduino to my PC and loaded an example which should print Ethernet DHCPaddressprinter. Then I tried the following setup:
I connected the Arduino with Ethernet to my PC and checked it's IP. I am able to ping the address via cmd but the example-code claims I do not have an ethernet shield connected. Now the odd thing: I can ping the address I checked via Ethernet-Controller regardless of my Arduino being connected or completley shut off (so it should be the wrong IP but it's the IP I get shown when Arduino is connected).
What am I doing wrong?
Thank you very much
