Hello all, thank you in advance for taking the time to read this over. I’m currently working on a project that requires the Arduino to receive Wi-Fi signals and decode them. I have bought a Wi-Fi shield and hooked it into the device, but am having trouble actually updating the firmware on the shield. I’ve been following this guide with little luck:
So far I’ve attempted the firmware update on Linux (Ubuntu 12.04) and Windows (Windows 7 64 Home Premium) with no luck. On linux the update fails to install the HD wifi elf file. On Windows, batchisp always says it has encountered a reading error with the elf file. I am unsure if the Windows issue has to do with the location of the elf file, but I have it located in a folder in the Flip bin, directly in the Flip bin folder, directly in and in a folder in Users/ and each time it tells me that it has encountered a reading error. When I tell it to retry twice, it supposedly finishes the update. I doubt this however, because I’ve been testing the scan for available networks code located here:
The shield is literally a foot from the router generating an unsecured open signal and keeps saying that 0 networks were found. The serial port monitor shows that the shield has a mac address of 0.0.0.0, which may or may not be an issue, I’m unsure. Below is a summary of the devices I have and the operating system I am running it on. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you!
Operating Systems attempted: Ubuntu 12.04, Windows 7 64 bit Home Premium
Devices: Arduino Uno, Arduino Wi-Fi shield
