Yesterday I received my Arduino Duemilanove and went straight to set it
up. I downloaded all the software, unzipped it and everything else then
plugged the board in. When I opened the “Blink” example I found the
serial port bit in tools wasn’t working. The board was definately plugged
in so I went on the troubleshooting on the Arduino homepage and tried
what they said. It still did not work. I was wondering if I had the bad luck
of getting a broken board? When I plugged it inb the power (PWR) LED
lit up along with the LED labelled L, above the two TX and RX. Is L meant to light up or is my board dodgy?
Thanks for helping.
