I'm currently building a device to monitor and control the fermentation of our home brewed beer using a Netduino Plus 2.
Since I don't want to drag an ethernet cable to the cellar I was planning on using a wifi bridge. After some searching I've bought a Vonets VAP11G. I tested the device using a desktop PC without a wifi adapter (also, a Windows computer is needed to set up the wifi bridge. It worked flawless, although the range is bit disappointing.
The next step is testing the wifi bridge with my little Fermentator project. And here started the frustration...
Although I see DHCP requests on my router log, the IP on the device is reported as 0.0.0.0. Opening a socket for listening or sending results in a SocketException. Changing the IP to static doesn't change a thing.
Once I was able to perform some network stuff, but the next reboot of the device resulted in the above behaviour.
Plugging in a ethernet cable makes the device run my code happily...
My question: does anyone have experience using a wifi bridge on a Netduino Plus? If so, which one did work for you?
PS: I've found one mention of "Vonets" on the forum, but nothing useful.
