The Arduino Ethernet Shield allows an Arduino or Arduino compatible board to connect to the internet. It is based on the Wiznet W5100 ethernet chip providing a network (IP) stack capable of both TCP and UDP. It supports up to four simultaneous socket connections. Use the Ethernet library to write sketches that connect to the internet using the shield.
Specification and Features :
- Based on the W5100Based on the Wiznet W5100 allows an Arduino board to connect to the internet.
