I have an Arduino UNO and a Geeetech ENC28J60 Ethernet module (http://www.geeetech.com/Documents/ENC28J60%20Manual%20Source%20Code.pdf). I tried to build the arduino example Webserver sketch. But it didn't work. Do I have to use the exact Arduino Wiznet Ethernet shield as the sketch says or I can get this to work with some modifications??
I managed to build a webserver with this hardware but using a library found on the Internet (from Andy's), But when I ping, most of the pings get time out, and so when i access the webserver it takes alot of time to show the html page (I used a homemade crosscable to connect the ethernet module directly to my laptop). what can cause this kind of ping time out??
