However, there is currently no command in ARC for reading serial, only writing to serial.
You wouldn't want to flood the EZ-B data channel with serial data from a 3rd party protocol. Then your EZ-B communication would be sacrificed. That is one of the reasons there is no serial input on the EZ-B, it wouldn't make much sense at this time. If we decide to go with a faster wifi connection, then it would make sense to include bidirectional serial. However, Bluetooth is far too slow for it.
The challenge with using WIFI only is that you lose your computer's internet connection in Ad-hoc mode... which is the most common and easiest way to use WIFI.
This is why I have selected Bluetooth to be the easiest and most versatile connection method.

With this card you will not lose your internet connection as the WIFI UART connects to your network router.
I use this card with no issues at all. So have a few others here.
