#27955 Ethernet never works if not connected on boot up?

Posted by samjones on 23 April 2012 - 06:19 PM

The whole point to purchasing/using the Netduino+ was for it's ethernet port. If that is not rock solid and robust (or at the very least reliably recoverable) it makes it pretty much a 'toy' and difficult/impossible to use for any serious application.

Chris, Got it! Just ordered 2! But why is the netduino + hard to find from the home page?

#22299 Proper networking code: Test ethernet link status, etc?

Posted by samjones on 01 January 2012 - 02:51 AM

I am working from the "internet of things" book, and I have stuff working, and life is pretty great in netduino+ land! I am now working on getting my code in "ship shape." How? Currently, I just call System.Net.HttpWebRequest, and System.Net.HttpWebResponse, and it works. But this is on my workbench, where everything is perfect. I now need to enhance my code to do something like this: - Check that ethernet is plugged in, and that I have link - Test that I can resolve names (e.g. that I have dns) - Ping / http GET against a known "good" domain name - Ping my server - etc So that if there is an issue at each step, I can flash the right error code, etc. In the land of NETMF, where is such functionality hiding? Thanks!
