so here is my dilemma. i understand that the ethernet shield allows the arduino device internet access and am able to successfully execute the webclient example that is built-in by plugging the ethernet cord into the wall and into the ethernet shield. however, i am in college so i don't have access to a router or LAN capabilities.
my question is: 1. how would i make the arduino act as a server and use my browser to access it??? i don't have a 192.168.... ip address.
what I am trying to do is pretty much print data to a web interface similar to this example. http://www.scienceprog.com/getting-hands-on-arduino-ethernet-shield/
any help would be greatly appreciated.
