WiFi shield sending weird packets

Hi,

I’m playing around with the WiFi shield. I want it to report the temperature from a sensor to a server (written in Python Twisted). However, I get some weird packets that I can’t parse. I listened to the packets, and attached the TCP stream. Most of the bytes are not ASCII, but the ones that are, are very odd. I’m using a Linksys router, but see “Wireless Router TL-WR841N”. Also, the hostname of my router shows up every once in a while?

Can somebody decrypt what’s going on? Any ideas?

Thanks!

What did you capture the packets with? Your Twisted server or another tool?

One thought would be to use something like the "nc" command or WireShark to make sure that fruit salad is on the wire and not introduced by something twisted in your Twisted server.

We can give you better answers here if you post your code.
