ENC28J60 Ethernet Module


The ENC28J60 Ethernet Module utilizes the new Microchip ENC28J60 Stand-Alone Ethernet Controller IC featuring a host of features to handle most of the network protocol requirements. The board connects directly to most microcontrollers with a standard SPI interface with a transfer speed of up to 20MHz.

2.Download the library File:ENC28J60 Library
3.Unzip it into the libraries file of Arduino IDE by the path: ..\arduino-1.0\libraries.
4.Open Arduino IDE Files -> Examples -> ENC_28J60 -> Helloworld.
The IP address in the example code need to be changed for the address assigned to ENC28J60 module.

// A simple web server that always just says "Hello World"

#include "etherShield.h"
#include "ETHER_28J60.h"

static uint8_t mac[6] = {0x54, 0x55, 0x58, 0x10, 0x00, 0x24};   // this just needs to be unique for your network, 
                                                                // so unless you have more than one of these boards
                                                                // connected, you should be fine with this value.

static uint8_t ip[4] = {192, 168, 1, 15};                       // the IP address for your board. Check your home hub
                                                                // to find an IP address not in use and pick that
                                                                // this or are likely formats for an address
                                                                // that will work.

static uint16_t port = 80;                                      // Use port 80 - the standard for HTTP

ETHER_28J60 ethernet;

void setup()
  ethernet.setup(mac, ip, port);

void loop()
  if (ethernet.serviceRequest())
    ethernet.print("<H1>Hello World</H1>");
