Ethershield - polling website


I am getting started with arduino and the ethernetshield.
Anyone an example about polling an internetpage every 5 sec? I tried with the webclient example but I can't create a sketch that has that functionality. Visiting 1 time a website and sending the content serial to my pc works fine but not doing this every 5 sec.... :cry:

very much thank you.

It would depend on the website, the ethernet shield is pretty slow, (about 4k per second I believe) if its more than a fairly low amount of data, it won't be able to keep up. Surely using the PC directly would be a better way to go ?
