    Thank you for your reply.
    Now everything is working just fine.
    But it was a real struggle to make the transition from the 1.0.0.36 to the beta 1.0.0.95.

    Anyway, is the reported version of the sketch on the plugin setup page correct, in the Beta version?
    The version shown at the top of the sketch is not always the same as the plug-in. I am currently running 1.0.0.95 of the plug-in, but the sketches are still 1.0.0.84. Greig does not change the version shown in the sketch until the sketch is changed.

    If you are running the release version 1.0.0.36 I recall the sketch matching. I personally would recommend using the beta in the plug-in manager which is 1.0.0.95 along with the 1.6.4 IDE from arduino.cc - a combination I know works fine. There are so many improvements in this beta, it will likely be the release version soon.

    If you are having trouble using that plugin, the sketches it generates and that IDE to compile and upload, we should be able to help you through any problems.

    Great news. I am glad you got it going. I didn't know that 1.7.6 was out. I may need to look at making it compatible.

    Seems like they release a new build almost weekly. It is hard to keep up with.

    Some more developments:

    Still trying to make my ip board get connected.

    I'm attaching a log.

    When I first power up the board, with only the UTP cable connected and powered by a good battery, I get the connected check mark on the devices page. But with it still showing connected, if I turn a relay on or off, even though the icon changes from on to off, the relay itself, does nothing.

    If I click on disconnect, I can never connect again until I power the board down and up again.

    Hello Greig. Thank you for your very useful plugin.
    I installed the final release on my computer, with Windows 7 and HS3, and all worked as expected.
    Then I tried to update the plugin to the newest Beta release and all hell went loose.
    Nothing would work. I spent all night trying to make it work without success.
    I tried just about everything, from uploading the sketch from a different computer, to trying to revert to the previous version, etc.
    Today I went back at it and when looking at the plugin setup page, I notice that it mentions that the "Available Sketch Version = V1.0.0.84".
    Looking at the ino file, I can see also that the version reported is in fact 1.00.0.85, even though the Beta plugin has version 1.0.0.95. So I changed the version in the ino file to
    Code:
    char* Version = "1.0.0.95";
    and finally I got my relay board to respond to the ON OFF commands.
    Not sure if changing the version number on the ino had anything to do with it.
    Now I'm trying to setup a ip board but the problem still persists. It says "Connection Failed" and it doesn't matter which version is on the ino file...

    I only have 6 more days of evaluation left. Please help.
    Thank you

    Has anybody managed this?

    This is possible but you need to modify the Sketch. I have the code to do this and I am looking to add it to the plugin but this is not a 5min change. I am also looking at other wireless solutions. I have ordered a Wifi shield but who knows when I will get it or get the time.

    Greig.

    I have not tried a WiFi shield. Somewhere in the very long original thread I recall someone having tried and failed. I think the WiFi shield uses a slightly different library that is not currently supported by the plug-in.

    That is if you are running the beta release. It was the newest build when 1.0.0.85 was released last month. The newest IDE is 1.6.5 and was just released. It may or may not work with the plug-in, but it probably will. Greig always puts that disclaimer in the help file because in the past the newer revisions of the IDE has broken the sketches supplied with the plug-in.

    OK, Thanks!

    I will give it a test soon.

    I have been distracted from my Arduino Pool controller I am building.

    When I get back to it, I will try the new BETA version.
