I wanted to build the classic web page that turns on and off an L.E.D. My plan was to use one of the Atmega line of micro-controllers with an enc28j60, which seems to be a popular solution to this sort of thing. However, there is one complication.
I wanted it to work over wireless (this would ultimately be used to monitor some hydroponics in a non-commercial environment. Maybe control a modified remote control helicopter, for kicks?)
I was going to use a RJ45 to wifi adapter, but frankly, I'm having some trouble working out the details. (Let's assume I can power it.) Is using an RJ45 to wifi in stack with an Ethernet controller really a good way of doing creating a wireless embedded server or is there another well-documented chip my googling and forum browsing hasn't realized?
