Good Morning EZ-B Robot Builders !
How much Code would be required to add WiFi to one of my existing EZ-B's ?
I still want to Maintain ALL the ARC Features, other than BlueTooth !
A most reliable friend guided me to the following Modules :
Roving Networks' RN-XV Wi-Fi Module 30025, https://solarbotics.com/product/30025/
SparkFun XBee Explorer Regulated 50828, https://solarbotics.com/product/50828/
Thank You All For The Consulting Services,
Upgrade to ARC Pro
Become a Synthiam ARC Pro subscriber to unleash the power of easy and powerful robot programming
I only have EZB and HW Virtual Serial Port even turned off all security on computer.
I thought WiFi is faster then Bluetooth?
Add a control
Benchmark is just here
Once added, with the board connected click on the button "read 200 ADC from ADC0"
Get your result.
You'll also notice it shows CPU usage and memory.
Run a benchmark and post a screenshot if you are unsure about the result. (Alt & Printscreen copies the screen to clipboard, open paint, paste, save, post here)
ITS in network places under WIFI connection
Also on the bottom right hand corner of your computer screen next to time.
I'll dig out the info on a good freeware network scanner/checker in the morning which will give much better and clearer details on any network issues you may have than windows will ever give you (FYI hover the mouse over the network icon by the clock and it'll tell you speed and strength). If you use team viewer id be happy to take a peek if you're really stuck.
NETWORK scanner zip file
there are others ,but i use these and work great
can somebody please make a video on how to install wireless to ez-b or a really detailed instructions with pictures for dummies please it seem to complicated for me i need a step by step guide, thanks
Always be careful what you download, more so if it's within a zip and not from the developers website direct. Malware is found in around 90% of files like that. The last thing you want is to have to clean up after a parasite.
Here are a couple of ping tests I just carried out on my network, one is to a Linux box connected via wifi with a bunch of services running the other to my router. Ping of around 5ms is what you are looking for.
If you are getting a ping much higher than that then it is indicating there is a problem with the connection and you will need to check out all settings on both the router and on the wifi module.
Check which services are running on the laptop too, this could indicate what the problems are.
Otherwise, I would say that you have a problem with the module itself. Again check all settings are correct. I recall you were having problems with setting it up correctly in the first place so it is not out of the question that it's been set up incorrectly.
Also check that all routes to and from the wifi module are open and working. Ensure that Windows is not blocking anything through the firewall, that no antivirus is blocking anything and that you don't have any viruses or malware causing the issue.
If you still have problems as I said I would happily help you over TeamViewer or similar, I have a wealth of experience (and qualifications) in networking and I'm sure it's something simple that's not been set up correctly initially.
YES i check the WIFI SCANNER AND IT HAS NO MALWARE or virus
IT DOES DOES MANY CHECKS and has graph
And can save or print the data ,its a small file for all versions of windows ,plus the site has alot more scanners and tools.
I have used it for while on all my computers
I can easy make a video only i am on a work trip for 1 week more.
HOPE somebuddy else will make a video,its not too hard and should take to long
i ordered wifi module today so i should be getting it in a week so after your work trip please make a video
I hate to need to disagree, but Norton is currently one of the worst choices for anti-virus. AVG or Microsoft Security Essentials are both better and cheaper (free)
I've also ordered one yesterday, I'm hoping it turns up next week as I have the week after off work and can look in to how to get it installed and working.
5 minds are better than one and all that :).
I use Pandasoftware its excellent ,very easy to install,remove or re-install
Download and try for 30 days free
I KEEP TELLING my dad to get rid of norton,i have only one till it runs out then i dont want it any more.
Another one i tried is kaspersky its all free .
NOT also good to remove anti-virus software and then re-install each time,it leavespart of the software and has update problems.
WITH free software like AVG witch i always see it one of the best anti-virus programs.
another i heard it good is kasperspy and its free too
Only used NORTON as a example only in my post
