PIC32-MAXI-WEB and MOD-WIFI
« on: March 27, 2013, 11:07:00 AM »
Hi. I read on the product description that "Wireless internet support when MOD-WIFI is connected on UEXT". I've tried both uext1 and uext2 connectors but wifi doesn't work. How to make this work?

After connecting it you will need to make software changes.  Olimex make the code available via their site I believe.

Hello sgufa,

Sorry for the delay, finally, found the time to look through the code, but unfortunately the code is not modified to work with MOD-WIFI. The information on the web site "Wireless internet support when MOD-WIFI is connected on UEXT" is misleading since it leaves the impression that PIC32-MAXI-WEB and MOD-WIFI would behave as plug-and-play. That is not the case.

However, please note the module MRF24WB0MA is supported in the stack! It might be listed as ZG2100 (that was the name of the chip before it was purchased by Microchip).

You would need to modify the \DemoSoft\TCPIP stack_lib\TCPIPConfig.h (for password settings etc). A good help would be looking through the demo code of MOD-WIFI with PIC32-WEB. Especially the TCPIPConfig.h of the project: http://pastebin.com/17BtDbw0.

I have fixed the misleading information on the web page.

We will try to make MOD-WIFI work with PIC32-MAXI-WEB for the next demo revision. We are trying to implement newer version of RTOS but unfortunately I can't give you estimated time about its release date, at the moment the software developers are overwhelmed with other tasks.
