This is really for follower/RancidBacon.
I'm having some real problems getting the wiz810mj working.
I got one of the SPI adaptor boards from nkc electronics, and everything's connected correctly.
I've tried all the example scripts, but can't get any of them working properly.
I've had a little success with a modified client example sketch, basically changed so that, instead of just finishing when a connection fails, it delays 5 seconds then attempts to reconnect.
So, a little success, meaning a handful of times I've got something, basically a 503 response. Thinking that this is 'coz it's making a HTTP/1.0 request, I've tried to change it ti HTTP/1.1. But with HTTP/1.1, I've never got anything. :-[
Here's the rub, my router. I'm connecting to the net through a Huawei D100 and the modems a E220. Now while I can connect to the net fine on my lappy, I'm thinking this may be the problem.
Has anyone else had any success with one of these?
Trying to track down the problem's really hard. The routers software is, well, basic to say the least. The firewall (just IP/MAC filtering) is turned off. Aside from that, it appears you can only see what devices are connected to the router if they've got a DCHP lease, which I'm not using. Did try the DCHP example, and it did show up a couple of times, but always got 'connection failed' on the Arduino.
So, back to the point. What I'm wondering is, is there any way I can get some more information from the arduino as to why the connection has failed? I've looked at the reference page for the library, but can't find any info on this.
Can you tell me at what point the IP is registered with the router? Is it at the Ethernet.begin stage or the client.connect stage?
Failing that, is there any software I can get that'll let me look deeper into what's going on? I'm using XP (stop laughing in the back there!).
Another couple of things, I've managed to ping the Arduino a couple of times, though, bizzarely, only when the sketch has crashed at the 'connecting..' point. :-?
Also, to try to narrow things down a little, I've tried pulling pages from my laptop by setting the server to my laptops IP (it's running WAMP), no luck whatsoever there though. Even tried to see if I could just get it to pull the login page from my router by putting its IP in, but again nothing.
Starting to lose the will to live now as I'm not sure what else to do.
Looking forward to your guidance.
