Just started using Arduino Uno Rev 3 with Wifi shield. Wifi network connection example works (using WEP). Needed to modify example web server and client examples for WEP (seem to be WPA only out-of-the-box). Examples do not accept or make socket connections. I am aware there are firmware updates for the wifi shield (the procedures are quite complex requiring multiple external vendor utilities). I was hoping to at least get the samples working before risking the firmware updates. No luck so far.
Should any of the examples work at all prior to firmware updates?
