Eth module long time stability (not to hang) #179
Halloo for a 1st time
Which Arduino Eth module to use to get best long time stability (not to hang) which is most important for my system?
About my system
I will use Ethernet, which IC is better ENC28J60 or W5100.
Is this true "ENC28J60 doesn't support TCP offloading, which means your code needs a plugin library which makes the sketch pretty big." http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=264327.0
And also: "ENC28J60 does only Ethernet layer and W5100 implements up to socket layer" http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=56057.30
I solved this by resetting the module every once in a while, using the reset pin on the enc28j60, just need to send a digital write with a low value, and then a digital write in high, after doing this, you might want to use the begin function again, doing this, i've had the module last for 2 days with no hangs.
