I have been experimenting with the RN-171 series of WiFi devices from Rov.Networks with great success.(RN-171,RN-174)and soon the RN-XV
The WiFi system is based around the RN-171 WiFi module.
The RN-174 is a development board with the RN-171 as the bases.
The RN-XV is a direct XBee plug-in replacement to a XBee carrier board with the RN-171. It will give one full WiFi with WPA2-PSK encryption and TCP/IP connection in a wireless LAN and make use of an existing XBee set-up.(XBee carrier board)
The RN-171 is a WiFi to serial converter...Perfect for micro's like the Propeller and the BS2...the RN-171 has a FIFO buffer to aide in communication and the serial Baud rate is selectable....upto 115.2KBaud...54Mbps on the WiFi side...802.11b/g
IP addressing is easy with the RN-171
Below is some test that I ran on this device.
The BS2 sample works well with telnet. enter a "1" to turn the LED on... "0" to turn it off from the telnet window."Hello" verifies connection'
I'd like to encourage others to post their findings with this WiFi module!
The Truth is out there
It's not rocket-surgery
I see why we don't have any water,All of the pipes are full of wires!
Now with WiFi
Not in the Spin Bunch
import RPi.GPIO as GPIO
