1. Yes it works. It's quite a complex process to get it working as it requires a virtual com port. Do a search, there is a topic regarding this however the results were inconclusive. There may be more on other topics but it's worth doing a search and seeing what comes up.

2. Parallel you connect the battery +ve and -ve to each other and connect that to the EZB (so both +ve to EZB +ve and both -ve to EZB -ve). Series you connect one batteries +ve to the other's -ve and the other 2 terminals connect to the EZB. Google it, here is one (of many) sites to check out http://www.zbattery.com/Connecting-Batteries-in-Series-or-Parallel

4. I can't help you on that one.

That would be parallel which would give you more capacity. i.e. if both were 4.5Ah 6V batteries you would end up with 9Ah 6v.

what i was shooting for thanks. the adapter can take this right?
#6  
one more question

Have led here
Total voltage=1.5+1.5+1.5=4.5

Can i use it on the ez-b?
#7  
Seems like the minimum dc voltage requirement for the EZ-B is 5 vdc. Most folks go higher than that due to the possibility of a voltage drop at start-up that would drop below the minimum of 5 volts thus possibly making the circuit components very unhappy.

I feel that wifi adapter can also be connected to accept TCP over a specific port, rather than a virtual com port. No?

We have some, but i haven't used it yet. I thought you can say "EVerything on port 23 is serial data" or soemthing..

That way, you just connect to the IP Address and port in ARC.

Like this..

192.168.0.2:23

DJ, are you saying in the connection control, where we usually select a com port to communicate with an EZ-B and an IP address to connect to another instance of ARC, we could just define an IP Address and port to connect to a WiFi enabled EZ-B as long as the port in the WiFi board is configured as Serial (TTY?)?

That would certainly solve the issue of trying to find a free/cheap and working virtual com port.

DJ,did you get wifi to work?
#11  
When populating the menu screens you assign the port number (i.e. 8090) or (23) as DJ mentioned. Then the IP link becomes (192.168.1.18:8090 or 23)

Thanks Robot-Doc, that simplifies things dramatically. Only problem now is that I need to buy a WiFi board, just when I had decided I would save the money and stick with bluetooth.....
