Severe Warning: If you haven't ordered an Ethernet Shield for the meeting on Oct 30 do it now!!
We will have a "hands-on" meeting to connect all our Arduino Boards to the Internet
Here is info for the best prices:
SainSmart...$17.99 ****** Best Price ********
Most of the other places such as Sparkfun and Adafruit are around $45.00 but they sell the best one, the official Arduino Ethernet Shield made in Italy by Arduino.
I bought the SainSmart one in June and it works great.
Make sure you buy a board with the Ethernet chip "W5100" or "W5200".
There are lower cost boards from China that have another chip and there are reports they are not as reliable.
