I am totally new to Arduino and, of course, new to the Ethernet Shield. I decided to try and run the Web Server tutorial code http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/WebServer .
Obviously the code needs to be changed to reflect the MAC address of the shield and the IP of the shield. I expected to be able to simply plug in the shield (attached to the Mega) to my router and then log into the router to check out the “attached devices” page to find the IP and MAC addresses. I can see my computer, cell phone and Tablet but not the Shield. Activity lights appear to indicate the Shield is properly attached but it does not show on the attached devices list.
What am I doing wrong?
