Re: OLED and ETHERNET problem

This solved my problem - and I have another type of display with exactly the same issue I'm hoping to resolve thanks to this SUPERB little piece of information.... worth updating the library permanently??

Re: Ethernet fails connecting after a while

Thanks very much - your explanation makes the MAC issue perfectly clear. On client/server you assume too much.. :) Could you point me to any working example of a cleint/server connection based on tcp/ip... I just want to send a package and receive a package constantly... I tried all sorts with that ...

Re: Ethernet fails connecting after a while

One more question - your test you recommend.. didn't follow the middle bit "copy the results of 3 tcp connections..."

Re: Ethernet fails connecting after a while

Thanks - REALLY - for your input that's really appreciated as I'm only starting to get to grips with this.. Ok, in slightly simpler English... the first bit about DNS makes absolute sense - just to clarify - you're saying only the last THREE digits need to be printable? So you're saying if I poll ev...

Re: Ethernet fails connecting after a while

Okay, two things: - Use readable characters for the last three bytes of the MAC address (i.e. 0x30 to 0x39, 0x41 to 0x5b and/or 0x65 to 0x7b); - Before each connection to the webserver reuse the Ethernet.begin() to make sure the socket is initiated. OK, I've not idea why the printable characters, c...

Re: Ethernet fails connecting after a while

Having discovered the code was slowing down after the address is resolved - so into the routine that uses an IP address... I had a hunch... in the past with issues I've changed the MAC address if the whole lot begins to lock up. Sure enough changes of mac address seemed to help so I did something si...

Re: Ethernet fails connecting after a while

Iv'e implemented your code... to explain - I'm using the client code to request a simple PHP web page with nothing more than a line of text in it... which works every time in a browser... In Arduino it works most of the time but then starts to slow down and eventually it's down to responding after m...
