I need help in how to connect the cuhead wifi shield v2 to WIFI. I plugged it on the Arduino Uno R3 and currently it lights up green. I followed many tutorialsin how todo by

1. Insert Cuhead Libary
2. Open simpleSever
3. Input IP settings

This has not worked for me, as the red light did not light up.

apologies on late reply.

I have tried the following and still no luck. Do you mean to use my phone as a personal hotspot and if so how?

i am creating a gas detector alarm using the arduino microcontoller. I need wifi connectivity to this project so that once the alarm is triggered it will send a warning to the user. 

The deadline for this project is 09/05/2014.Please can you help i dont have much time.

Out of desperation I'm going to post my own setup here, I've gotten the CuHead 2.0 to work with my phone hotspot with no issue, but it refuses to connect with my NetGear WNDR3700 and Dlink 614+. I don't get a red LED. The router is set up on, with WPA2-PSK, and the SSID VDI on the 2.4GHz channel.

// Wireless configuration parameters ----------------------------------------
unsigned char local_ip[] = {192,168,1,29}; // IP address of WiShield
unsigned char gateway_ip[] = {192,168,1,1}; // router or gateway IP address
unsigned char subnet_mask[] = {255,255,255,0}; // subnet mask for the local network
const prog_char ssid[] PROGMEM = {"VDI"}; // max 32 bytes

unsigned char security_type = 3; // 0 - open; 1 - WEP; 2 - WPA; 3 - WPA2

// WPA/WPA2 passphrase
const prog_char security_passphrase[] PROGMEM = {"8708814xxx"}; // max 64 characters

If anyone can give clues as to why it doesn't work I would be eternally grateful.

As your describe , I think its the router's problem. You can try to reset your router, and try again.


We use TP-LINK Wireless Router WR340G, the wifi shield works well.
