Differences between WiFi Shield and Ethernet Shield in sending data to a server?

Hey guys,

I've been reading a lot about Ethernet Shield and how it can be used to send data to a server and mainly to store it in a database.

I want to use a WiFi Shield instead, which works better for my project.

Basically, i want to send GPS data and save it in a database, then retrieve the data and represent it in a PHP Page.

Can the WiFi Shield do that for me? Are the both shields act the same in connecting the Arduino and sending data?


Any help please?

I managed to post parameters to a PHP server with the Wifi Shield. So it is possible :-) You can just modify some of the example projects in the IDE.
