Introduction: The Cheapest and Simplest Method to Control Arduino Through Ethernet

A video on how to control arduino through ethernet. Full two way communication both sending and reciving!

Shows the overview, wiring instructions, arduino sketch, testing as well as an extra part on creating an android app that communicates with the server on the ethernet module.

arduino sketch below, just copy and paste
// A simple web server that shows temperature and controlls an LED

#include "etherShield.h"
#include "ETHER_28J60.h"
#include
OneWire  ds(A3);  // on pin A3
int celsius,celsiusF;
int outputPin = 3; //the LED pin
static uint8_t mac[6] = {
  0x54, 0x55, 0x58, 0x10, 0x00, 0x24};   // this just needs to be unique for your network,
// so unless you have more than one of these boards
// connected, you should be fine with this value.

static uint8_t ip[4] = {
  192, 168, 1, 15};                       // the IP address for your board. Check your home hub
// to find an IP address not in use and pick that
// this or 10.0.0.15 are likely formats for an address
// that will work.

static uint16_t port = 80;                                      // Use port 80 - the standard for HTTP

ETHER_28J60 e;

hi. can you share how to make your phone app like in the video??? thank you :)

dgfarny (author)2013-12-05

can you please match the code to the video, this has been helpful but as shown it does not work. I went to www.trollmaker.com and found a simple version of this and with a little effort was able to get up and running

ohh you mean arduino code?? yeah there is something wrong part of the code changed to links when I pasted it - that's because it was pasted as plain code and the html tags were interpreted as real html tags. Hmm I wonder if it can be fixed. Meanwhile go to the video description on YT and find a link to the thread on this project on arduino forum - you can download the arduino code there
