    It's not clear what, exactly, you want to do but the WizFi210 is an inexpensive WiFi-to-Serial adapter that can do both infrastructure (connect to LAN) or ad hoc (connect peer-to-peer with your laptop). It is SMD so you might want to look, instead, at the ConnectOne Nano Socket iWiFi or Mini Socket iWiFi which cost about twice as much but are simpler to handle as far as mounting. All are rather simple to work with, offering modem-like AT commands for control. The ConnectOne modules have additional interfaces (SPI, USB for both & Parallel for the nano) and also have more built-in protocols like email and network time and have SSL3 security.

    is nano socket wifi is serial to wifi?...because i want in my project is to monitor all my sensor status in realtime...is nano socket wifi has its own IP address?..tnx for your reply..plz..

    ConnectOne's iWiFi MiniSocket module uses an on-board serial interface with your PIC chip. PIC chip uses SEROUT2 PICBASIC statments to send AT+i commands to the MiniSocket. One of the commands will set the MiniSocket up as its own web site on the internet via the iWiFi interface to a router that is connected to the internet. You can also use it as a LAN to FTP data to a web site and also to send emails via the iWiFi interface to the internet via the router. You can give it its own IP address or run it in DHCP mode where it gets assigned an IP by the WiFi router. Any other questions?

    The iWiFi MiniSocket is made by ConnectOne. You can purchase it from Mouser for $59.00 at http://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/...1SNlPxFA%3d%3d .
    If you can afford to purchase the EVB version, it includes one of the MiniSocket modules and will help speed up your development of code and debugging. Once you get your AT+i command statements debugged using the EVB you can move the MiniSocket from the EVB to your own PCB with assurance it is going to work with your PicBasic code.
    You can purchase the EVB for the WiFi MiniSocket for $160 at

    The Evaluation Board is not needed. Just use a MAX232 to connect the iChip to a PC and use the free Config Utility. Save yourself the headache and some money.

    Or spend $10 for this USB-Serial adapter.

    Guys...i tried everything to get negotiate to distributor of connectone but i failed because of they require me of minimum order quantity of 50 pcs..huhuh..very harsh..but i will try the Rabbit Semiconductor 20-101-1309..i dont have any idea but if you ever try this let me know because theres no further information in there product so i need more information before buying this product..

    Datasheet for the Rabbit Semiconductor 20-101-1309

    However, that has no application with PicBasic Pro nor even with a PIC as it includes its own microcontroller and is programmed in a dialect of C.

    Where are you located? Mouser has branches worldwide so you may be able to find the ConnectOne device through one of those branches.

    Then your best bet is the WIZ610wi which you can buy online from Wiznet directly for $35US.

    It is through-hole but the pins are on 1.27mm centers so you cannot use it with a breadboard. To test with a PC, use the Sparkfun adapter I referenced earlier

    Read the datasheets and user manuals. They have similar features.

    The Connect One devise is ~3 volts only. Run the whole project at ~3 volts and you will be fine.

    Would I be correct in saying the Microchip MRF24WB0MB isn't mentioned here due to it's requirement of a "C" library of the TCP/IP protocol stack?

    I didn't mention it because I was unaware of it. I doubt the C stack is a necessity but have not looked at whether it's inputs/outputs are documented sufficiently to use with other languages/chips. The price is good ($30 at Mouser). It's surface mount which makes it tough to breadboard.

    From the data sheet:
    The MRF24WB0MA/MRF24WB0MB modules are designed to be used with Microchip’s TCP/IP software stack. The software stack has an integrated driver that implements the API that is used in the modules for command and control, and for management and data packet traffic.
    The Microchip TCP/IP software stack is available in the free Microchip Application Libraries download (including example applications and source code) from the Microchip web site, http://www.microchip.com/wireless
    The combination of the module and a PIC running the TCP/IP stack results in support for IEEE Standard802.11 and IP services. This allows, for example, the immediate implementation of a wireless web server.
    It is breadboard able with thin lead wires soldered to each MRF24WB0M connection and at the other end a short length of a clipped resistor lead to connect to the breadboard.
