Someone can tell me how they connect the bridges to the Max232 and Ethernet Shield to work properly. I can not run any example of Arduino Ethernet. No LED lights on the Ethernet Shield.

You need to download the chipKIT Ethernet libraries. The ones included in the MPIDE do not work. You can find a link at the bottom of the Digilent page for the shield.,892,942&Prod=CHIPKIT-NETWORK-SHIELD

Thank's Jacob.

I copied the libraries of chipkit to libraries folder of arduino, and I tried compile the ChipkitWebserver, but the arduino has a error:

C:\Archivos de programa\Arduino\chipkit.\libraries\chipKITEthernet\chipKITUDP.cpp: In member function 'int UDP::readPacket(uint8_t*, uint16_t, uint8_t*, uint16_t*)': C:\Archivos de programa\Arduino\chipkit.\libraries\chipKITEthernet\chipKITUDP.cpp:301: error: invalid conversion from 'uint16_t*' to 'WORD*' C:\Archivos de programa\Arduino\chipkit.\libraries\chipKITEthernet\chipKITUDP.cpp:301: error: initializing argument 5 of 'int ChipKITUDPReadPacket(UDP_SOCKET, uint8_t*, WORD, NODE_INFO*, WORD*)'

The arduino version is Mpide 0022 Windows 20110822

have you put them in hardware/pic32/libraries?

Thanks slayer1991, you are right. I can compile the examples of chipkit. I only put them in \libraries this is my error.

Now, i can upload the ChipkitWebServer example, but not flashing light in RJ45 of the chipkit network shield. How do you put the jumpers in the boards for working ok??

I have no jumpers installed on my Network Shield with the WebServer application running.

I'm so sorry. The boards were not connected correctly. One pin was bend. Now It works ok.

Thanks a lot.
