I have a simple question, if the 'link' led on the ethernet shield is not lighting up when I plug into the ethernet jack, is this a sign of a faulty board? (obviously the board is powered on)
The cable works fine when plugged into other devices/pcs ... just not the ethernet shield :(
I am only a newbie with the arduino, so there could be many other problems, but I just wanted to know any simple ways of diagnosing whether the problem is with the ethernet shield (hardware) or the software ... which was just the WebClient/WebServer example sketches.
Thanks for any assistance.
