added the "ip" to this line

// start the Ethernet connection and the server:
Ethernet.begin(mac,ip);


Now I can ping it. I can't get to the webpage that you normally see at the local ip.

Yeah, I just bought the ethernet board from the arduino store to replace my old one that got wet.......

Make sure you add ", ip" to the line that initiates the Mac.

It's working fine on the uapp and the Android app.

The portal is flakey. It connects but it drops after a few minutes and it displays the page as if I have every attachment including about 10 relays. Don't know why.

This board looks like it has been discontinued, are there any other suitable versions?

Right, but I don't have a Star and with a baby on the way my aquarium budget is severely limited. My wifi module is also not reliable. I'm going to get a Star but have so much more to get going the Star is last on my list unless I can't get a better network connection going with my +.

I don't want a cloud module because I'd be throwing more money at a wireless solution when I'd much rather a wired solution. House is wired with cat 6.
