Hello guys, i’m kind of new in here and i need help in connecting my Arduino Mega to Blynk using the arduino ethernet shield. I just run the simple example (Arduino_Ethernet) from Blynk library and the serial monitor shows the following:
I pretty sure i read all of them before i got here. I tried debugging everything i have, but still no result. I’m just connecting the ethernet shield to the router but i have no connection, just a “login timeout”. Did you ever encounter anything like that?
This is a very common error that simply means NO connection to Blynk server. Why there is no connection can be almost impossible for us over here to fix as it may simply be something in your network… try the troubleshooting and confirm you actually can communicate to the internet with that Ethernet board (use non Blynk sketches from the Web if need be).
Or just skip that Ethernet shield for now and try with the simple USB link…
But again… PLEASE use search. It has been answered a multitude of times.
I guess our developers should fill the gap in docs regarding this simple PING test. It is the starting point for anything further
Well, try the USB option… it basically turns your PC into an oversized Serial to Ethernet shield… if that works then you can go back to troubleshooting the actual shield. If it doesn’t work, then we have a better idea of the direction to look.
