Hello everyone so i got this school project and i have to integrate a wireless communication. and i am really new at programming since my major is about power system, so i've seen this wifi shield but i am really confuse on how does it connect to my laptop/mobile phone/pc. does it act like a router and i have to configure my laptop to connect to the wifi shield? do i have to connect this wifi shield to a router and then it will connect to the internet and i can monitor what is happening on my arduino board? do i have to create a GUI application so that it will communicate with my pc.
Please elaborate this thing to me. thank you :)
