New Project: Control Motor with Sensor Over Internet

Hi guys, been working my way through some arduino tutorials on youTube.

I can read sensor data and control a DC motor, but I'm looking to use the sensor to control the motor over the internet without using the ethernet shield. Can anyone give me any pointers on where I need to focus my research.

Thank you in advance.

Your question doesn't make a lot of sense. How can you control it via the internet without having some sort of connection to the Internet, either directly or indirectly

I presume your question may be.. Is there any alternative hardware to connect an Arduino to the Internet?

If so, the answer is yes. There are standalone Ethernet (cabled) modules that you can buy. There is also the wifi shield, but I presume you don't want a "shield" There are some new Wifi to Serial adaptors, but these are in their infancy and you'd need to write all the code for them yourself.

Hi rogerClark

Thanks for your reply. Yes my question wasn't very clear, so I'll try again. I have an arduino uno connected to an ultrasonic sensor which is in turn connected to a computer via USB which itself is connected to the internet. I have another arduino uno connected to a DC motor again connected to another separate computer in a different location via USB which is also connected to the internet.

I want to use the ultrasonic sensor as an input to control the speed and direction of the DC motor which is an output device. I want to do this without any additional shields/boards such as the Ethernet/WiFi/gsm modules available. The resources I have come across are where the web browser is used as an input device to control an output device using HTML, Php and webserver.

Just wondering if my problem has a solution and where do I begin.

Thanks.
