I am asking you for help 'cause I can't really understand this... I am just trying to upload the examples of DWIFIck libraries and I can't get any of them working. I don't get any error on MPIDE (mpide-0023-windows-20121013) but in the serial monitor I'm not getting what I should be getting...

In the case of DNETck::beginScan, the program runs well but when it reaches DNETck::beginScan() it gets blocked and nothing past that command gets done. So if run, for example, the wifiscan example the only thing that appears in my serial command is: " Start of Sketch WiFiScan 1.0 Digilent, Copyright 2012 "

I am using chipkit max32 + chipkit wifi shield. I installed the DNEct and DWIFIck libraries according to

What am I doing wrong here?

Thanks, Joana

hi, excuse me, but in the DNETck library doesn't existe the static method beginScan(). This method is part of DWIFIcK (probably you have write wrong the method in post).

I have the same configuration, so i have the max32 and wifi shield and they work together. I'm try the example in the value, for example the scan of network and work well.

Do you have change something in the example code?

My bad, i wrote it wrong in the post. The command is, indeed, DWIFIcK::beginScan();

Nevertheless, I didn't change anything in the examples code. I just opened the example and tried to run it...

Any ideas?

have you try, for example, the WifiTCPclient example? Also in this example you don't have any result (excluding the serial string)?

have you set the correct library for your shield?

I finally got this to work. I downloaded the libraries again and reinstalled them, and i runned the WifiScan example and it worked perfectly (: Maybe there has been an error the first time I did it...

Thanks anyway (:
