Hey all, I am currently starting to learn the Arduino. Robotics/programming is mostly a hobby for me (or I want to make it one), I have basic C/C++ Java experience, but this language is new to me, and I generally have very little experience hardware side.
I have an Arduino Duemilanove and an ethernet shield mounted on it. I have the older style shield with no Mac address on the underside of it. Currently I am just trying to upload a sample sketch, actually I am just trying to establish communication with the Arduino at all. I have tried plugging it into my computer direct through Ethernet, I found nothing using ipconfig. Then realizing I need to connect it to a router. I have done this, and when I enter my router's DHCP client table, I do not see the Arduino or ethernet shield listed as a device. I have been trying to use the ChatServer sample sketch and was following the http://arduino.cc/en/Guide/ArduinoEthernetShield article and received the following error from the compiler: avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x30 avrdude: stk500_disable(): protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x51
I assume this is related to the fact that really, I cannot connect to the Arduino at all.
Any help is greatly appreciated,
