I have 2 statements of "Serial.println" in void loop() not working in Chipkit uno32 but working well in Arduino Uno. Can anyone provide some help if any additional commands required?

Have you tried the ASCII Table Sample Sketch? Does it work for you on your chipKIT? It is a good example of how to use the Serial.println(). I think this code is the same on Arduino as well as chipKIT.

We bought PIC32MAX and Network Shield board. I want to try the demo code of ASCII Table in the MPIDE0023 -window 20120903. Because the Serial is used for uploading firmware, I changed the "Serial" in demo code to "Serial1" and use the pin 19 (RX1), and Pin 18(TX1). I also used a USB/RS232 converter cable which has prolific USB/RS232 chip. When I run the program, what I can see on the serial monitor is wrong characters. It prints a lot of characters on the screen, but it is not readable.

Anybody has the same issue? or any solution? THANKS!

Sounds like the baud rate in your code doesen't match your terminal.

You set it in yiur program with the Serial1.begin (9600) or in the terminal with a drop down in the bottom right of the screen.
