Hi All,


it is the first time that I'm using a Nedtuino Plus (I used the basic one ) and I was try to see if I can perform a Web Request call from it. To Achieve tried to ping and get the response back using the code below:


HttpWebRequest request = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create("");
        using (WebResponse response = request.GetResponse())
            StreamReader reader = new StreamReader(response.GetResponseStream());
            string responseText = reader.ReadToEnd();


When I debug it the code throw an exception when try to get the response but unfortunately it does not return much details.


My first thought has been : Is the board properly connected to internet ?


I'm using am Asus portable Router (WL-330n) which is correctly connected to my home WI-FI.


I have connected the netduino plus to it but it does not work.


I was trying the procedure showed here to change the network settings but when I try to update it returns "  unable to erase configuration sector memory"



I have already tried the procedure here but is does not work.


Any help please :-( ??

Hi Guys,


I have fixed it. I was using MDDeploy 4.3 while the netduino plus was on 4.2. I have installed the netduino SDK 4.2 and it worked!


In regards internet connection I have manually set the ip address along with the subnet mask  and it worked too!


Please contact me if you step in the same issue and I'll try to help you
