Arduino Uno with Ethernet Shield W5100 not working



  • Hi,

    I have trouble with my ethernet shield.
    I tried different methods and there where different publications on how to connect, but in the end I was not able to get it running.
    I tried: CE and CS pin on 6 and 5 with and without changing MISO/MOSI/SCK to A0 to A2, but the best result I got was an error free start of the gateway but not receiving any data from nodes so far (connection to ip network seems to be fine, at least the ip is declared via dhcp). The same setting was doing great without ethernet shield. Tried it also on a Mega but without success...
    To sort out the power issue I put an extra 3.3 power regulator together with a big 470 microF capacitor which should do the trick.
    Any ideas? I will post the exact wirings in a few minutes.

    If you have one working in this setting, can you send me the exact sketch together with the wiring information?

    Thank you!

  • Mod

    @kduino looks like all functions (present, setup, loop) are missing.



  • Hi, I've cut present, setup and loop not to waist to much space. I edit and add them too...
    Unfortunately as you can see, the gateway is not receiving anything and therefore not answering the node.
    I will test with different hardware now, if there is something weird.


  • Mod

    @kduino thanks for clearing that up.

    st=OK:
    

    means that the node is getting a hardware acknowledgement on the sent message. So something (probably the gateway unless you have other MySensors nodes nearby) receives the message and acknowledges it, but then nothing happens.

    Could you add #define MY_DEBUG_VERBOSE_RF24 to both sketches to see if that can give a clue?



  • Wow cool, so the hardware is basically running, but for some reason, the gateway doesn't accept the message.
    I'll double-check the signing algorithm (perhaps I comment it to see, if there are arriving unsigned messages) and I will post the result.
    Strange thing. Thank you very much!
    I'll do this tonight.


  • Contest Winner

    @kduino looks like communication fails already during parent lookup. Signing should not kick in until after that so I don't think that is the issue. But you could always try to disable signing to see if it affects things (the added code from signing could lead to stack problems which might manifest itself in many obscure ways, in case you are limited in RAM).

  • What I have to mention: The setting was running great as a Serial Gateway config. But when I changed to ethernet gateway I was not able to restore this condition together with the W5100 shield. Moreover I don't know if the pin4 is making some trouble. As far as I know its used for writing to the sd card (which I don't use...).


  • Mod

    @kduino Could you give this a try? Add the following to your sketch:

    //...
    #define SD_SS_PIN                     (4)  // chip-select for SD card (unused, pull high!) 
    //...
    
    void before() {
        pinMode(SD_SS_PIN, OUTPUT);
        digitalWrite(SD_SS_PIN, HIGH); 
    }
    
    


  • I'll try this as soon as possible. Although the ip network connection doesn't seem to be the issue since ip dedication is without problem.



  • @kduino Did you manage so solve it please?
