  • Best price for ethernet shield

    posted by chrl on 06/24/2013

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    It's very cheap and affordable. Good quality of manufacture. Easy to install.

    Cons:

    1) There is no MAC - had to generate it manually
    2) When connected to ethernet switch, if there is too much noise on the wires (i had 5 devices connected) - the shield starts working slow. Delays up to 60-80 seconds when responding usual http-query to inner webserver.
    3) It takes 10-13 pins for it's own needs, so you won't use them for another needs.

    OtherThoughts:

    Would be nice if the manufacturer pre-generates MAC-address.

    Bottomline:

    Best buy for this price - you won't regret that.
