So this evening on a whim I decided I wanted to try my hand at networking my arduino.
So i searched the web for something easy to try my brand spanking new Ethernet Shield with.
I ran across this:
This is perfect, because on the same day my Ethernet shield showed up, so did my DHT11
So why not try both at the same time.
Well, I am not that crazy, so first I hooked up my DHT11 with a 6K resistor across V and S as a pull up
and I ran ther example serial monitor sketch that is in the DHT11 Library.
WOW, That was easy, it worked.
Next I decided to try the ethernet shield with it.
So I compiled the example on the above webpage.
The serial monitor gave me an ip address fr the web page on my local net
I pointed to it and nothing...
Hmmm, You know it really helps when you plug the ethernet Shield in to your network to use the network to access the data.
So i did... again the serial monitor gave the IP address, and again... NOTHING
Oh ya, I remembered that when I set up my network here this year I (for some unknown reason) changed my network's IP addresses.
ok, edited the sketch for a compatible IP address, try it again...
hey, it worked.
In less than one hour I managed to have my arduino publish the temperature and humidity of my living room on a readable web page.
Now, if only this webpage was not just local.
That will be for another day.
