Sync Problem with Wifi Shield

I have an arduino UNO. I can upload sketches fine, and everything works as it should. That is, until I connect my brand new wifi shield. I got the shield from ebay, but I believe its exactly like this one, except that mine is red (http://www.geeetech.com/wifiwizfi210-shield-for-iduinoarduino-p-617.html).

I get the same error whether I’m on a mac, or a windows machine. Holding down the shift key while uploading sketches I can get the following verbose output:


Binary sketch size: 3,296 bytes (of a 32,256 byte maximum)

avrdude done. Thank you.


Any suggestions on what to do to fix this or things I might try?
As soon as I disconnect the wifi shield, I can upload sketches just fine…
