I have added the NCD Ethernet shield to a Photon (I realize that it does not permit access to the cloud). I know it is working because the Photon does access my server.
However, the loop() routine now is not executing. I read that according to @rickkas7, to prevent this, one needs to put the Photon in Manual Mode.
My Photon is in manual mode. I know because it is flashing white and I also cannot reach it through the cloud.
I am sure the loop is not executing because my LCD should display a variable in the loop().
What is causing that? I would appreciate the community’s input.
