With this Ethernet Shield, your Arduino board can be connected to internet. It features an ENC28J60 SPI Ethernet controller with HR911102A RJ45 socket. It supports use of a web client application to use Arduino as a distributed network sensor. This shield is stackable by accepting prototype shields or any other boards with an Arduino compatible interface.
Be Happy**The Wiznet chipset is the "official" shield and the one recommended by Simon Monk in his book "Programming Arduino". The ENC chip is less capable.You may be using example programs written for the ENC chip set. Simon Monk has program examples that work with you chips
Since you're not allowed to post "links", here's a youtube vid that has a link to a tutorial with sample code. In order to set this up, you're going to need to install a library for the ethernet controller. The linked tutorial will go over this.
Hope this helps.
just wondering .. are you saying it can be powered by POE (power over ethernet) ? Cause that would be cool!! www.link also assume its only 10Mb .. not that thats a problem.. just wondering..
Looking at the PCB, I don't believe this particular shield can be powered via POE at least not natively. Compared to the Wiznet W5100 based controller, this ENC28J60 based shield is a basic, no frills, ethernet controller. IMO, for a few dollars more ($20) you can find the Wiznet ones on that popular auction site. Not only is it 10/100, but it also has an on-board micro SD card slot.
