Thoughts on the best WIFI shield

Hi All
I am just starting out on blynk and have made a couple of basic projects , I used the ADAFRUIT CC3000 in them and now have connectivity problems, ie it losses connection after a couple of hours , i have read that this chip is a slight bit unreliable,
As a beginner, can any one advise me on the most reliable, easy to work with and cost effective WIFI shield to use with Blynk
Thank you in advance

I would recommend buying something with connectivity integrated. For example:

  • SparkFun Blynk Board of course :wink:
  • Particle Photon
  • Wemos D1
  • NodeMCU
  • Yun

There are so many options. Why bother with expensive shields?
