# Wifi enabling my Arduino

I'm having a lot of trouble finding wifi enabled arduino shields. All the places I've seen them are out of stock for some reason.

Would this thing work? How would I hook it up?

Basically I want to build a network enabled (wireless) robot with the arduino. So you can see it's clearly better if I can get a wifi shield.

Edit: To follow up on this post, I did end up getting the Wifly shield from Sparkfun. I was unable to get it working with the Arduino (Duemilanove) I had, and I ordered an Uno on a hunch, and it works on that! Connects to APs and can host an ad-hoc network. Unfortunately no security options exist for ad-hoc. But I'm okay with that.

• I accepted this answer because it was the most helpful. I think I'm going to get the Wifly shield from Sparkfun since it's my only option at the moment. I can't wait an indefinite amount of time to see what happened to asynclabs' wifi solutions just to save $30... – Steven Lu Mar 18 '11 at 1:22 Depending on how comfortable you feel with Linux, a really cheep option can be to use a cheep wi-fi router (such as a La Fonera) wit a custom firmware installed. a google search for "Arduino Fon" will give you some examples. Jim Here is the later version of the WiFly Shield - US$70.
