Ethernet shield help
Hi all, Ive been trying to get this ethernet shield and wireless radio working for a while and keep getting 0;0;3;0;9;check wires. I've got a Arduino Mega with a Wiznet shield plugged in and as a pair they work fine. (tested with the webserver example).
I've tried following the instructions on building an ethernet gateway but cant seem to find a conclusive wiring guide. I currently have my radio powered separately with 3.3V and the arduino/shield with 5V.
And now im lost as to how to connect up the radio. On the build page it says to enable soft SPI in RF24_config.h file. But the pins in the file are 14, 15 & 16 for SCK, MO & MI. These arent mentioned anywhere on the build page? Do I need to enable soft SPI if im using an ethernet shield? If i dont I still get the same problem using A0, A1 and A2 as it says.
If anyone has a working mega and Wiznet shield I'd love to know the wiring config. Thanks all! Cant wait to get building...
(Oh and planning on using a vera once I get it working)

yes you need to enable softSPI. I had to pull the latest code from github (I had been using mysensors) in order to get it working. Once I did that and wired it up like the wiki suggests it worked fine.
Ive tried it with SoftSPI and uploading using arduino software 1.6.0 but still no luck?
Ive also just tried it on an arduino Uno and im still getting check wires.
