Wifi shield not present

Hi. I’m using an Arduino UNO and recently got the CC3000 WiFi Shield
( http://tinkersphere.com/shields/484-arduino-wifi-shield-cc3000.html ).

I am running the following example ‘Scan Networks’ code, but am only getting ‘WiFi shield not present’ in my Serial Monitor:

/*

This example prints the Wifi shield’s MAC address, and
scans for available Wifi networks using the Wifi shield.
Every ten seconds, it scans again. It doesn’t actually
connect to any network, so no encryption scheme is specified.

Circuit:

  • WiFi shield attached

void setup() {
//Initialize serial and wait for port to open:
Serial.begin(9600);
while (!Serial) {
; // wait for serial port to connect. Needed for Leonardo only
}

// check for the presence of the shield:
if (WiFi.status() == WL_NO_SHIELD) {
Serial.println(“WiFi shield not present”);
// don’t continue:
while(true);
}

// Print WiFi MAC address:
printMacAddress();

// scan for existing networks:
Serial.println(“Scanning available networks…”);
listNetworks();
}

void loop() {
delay(10000);
// scan for existing networks:
Serial.println(“Scanning available networks…”);
listNetworks();
}

void printMacAddress() {
// the MAC address of your Wifi shield
byte mac[6];

// print your MAC address:
WiFi.macAddress(mac);
Serial.print(“MAC: “);
Serial.print(mac[5],HEX);
Serial.print(”:”);
Serial.print(mac[4],HEX);
Serial.print(":");
Serial.print(mac[3],HEX);
Serial.print(":");
Serial.print(mac[2],HEX);
Serial.print(":");
Serial.print(mac[1],HEX);
Serial.print(":");
Serial.println(mac[0],HEX);
}

void listNetworks() {
// scan for nearby networks:
Serial.println("** Scan Networks **");
int numSsid = WiFi.scanNetworks();
if (numSsid == -1)
{
Serial.println(“Couldn’t get a wifi connection”);
while(true);
}

// print the list of networks seen:
Serial.print(“number of available networks:”);
Serial.println(numSsid);

// print the network number and name for each network found:
for (int thisNet = 0; thisNet<numSsid; thisNet++) {
Serial.print(thisNet);
Serial.print(") “);
Serial.print(WiFi.SSID(thisNet));
Serial.print(”\tSignal: “);
Serial.print(WiFi.RSSI(thisNet));
Serial.print(” dBm");
Serial.print("\tEncryption: ");
printEncryptionType(WiFi.encryptionType(thisNet));
}
}

void printEncryptionType(int thisType) {
// read the encryption type and print out the name:
switch (thisType) {
case ENC_TYPE_WEP:
Serial.println(“WEP”);
break;
case ENC_TYPE_TKIP:
Serial.println(“WPA”);
break;
case ENC_TYPE_CCMP:
Serial.println(“WPA2”);
break;
case ENC_TYPE_NONE:
Serial.println(“None”);
break;
case ENC_TYPE_AUTO:
Serial.println(“Auto”);
break;
}
}

Any help is greatly appreciated. (I’ve already ensured that the ICSP pins are firmly connected…)
