I find myself in need of a wired ethernet connection. I want to stay on the Particle platform because of the upcoming Electron. I’m attempting to grab data from an embedded system through a web interface and then relay it to my database for analysis etc.
I have acquired a Wiznet W5100 breakout that communicates via SPI. Physical connection was easy. The board is communicating with the network - I can see the link and rx/tx lights going.
I’ve tried my hand at bringing over the Arduino library. With guidance from here I made some headway. Every time I tried compiling I was missing another #include file. After tracking down about 5 additional files I had everything I needed.
Now I’m stuck. Getting tons of compile errors. Also doesn’t help that I’m pretty green when it comes to C++.
However I am motivated to learn. Anyone else interested in tackling this with me? Or have any guidance?
