I will be purchasing the Mega 2560 R3 from Amazon http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006H0DWZW/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A2SKBHUTG3Y4H1.
I've been doing a lot of surfing for info on a ethernet shield for the controller and it appears there are a few issues with installing a ethernet shield on the Mega 2560 R3.
I really don't want to jump thru a lot of hoops getting a shield to work with this controller. So, can anyone provide some insight on what to purchase etc. to minimize/eliminate my grief?
