Lantronix xPico module is a highly flexible network connectivity solution for serial interface devices.
Lantronix xPico is thanks to its miniature dimensions (smaller than a usual SD card) suitable even for designs typically intended for chip solutions.
The key difference with the xPico is that there is virtually no need to write a single line of code (FW), resulting to a much lower development cost and faster time to market. The xPico is based on the industry-proven Lantronix device server with a relatively very easy to integration to a target device. Built-in web-manager enables a quick and comfortable configuration.
xPico is suitable for all devices, where it is physically necessary or convenient to use a module with miniature dimensions and a low profile. With the xPico you´re free to place an RJ45 connector according to your demands. That´s why it is possible to utilize the xPico even in space critical designs, where for example the Lantronix XPort wouldn´t suit. Detailed information will provide you the xPico user guide and the xPico integration guide. For a development support also the xPico development kit is available.

Lantronix xDirect brings a complete solution of Ethernet connectivity of a serial device to LAN – directly, without an intervention to a device.
The new module – serial / LAN communication interface incorporated into a cable, brings the most simple possible solution how to connect any device with a serial interface with a DB9 connector (RS232, RS422, RS485) into a LAN and use all advantages of a remote access, data acquisition etc.
xDirect can be powered through a DB9 connector, miniUSB-B connector or also via (Power over ethernet). Similarly like Lantronix xPort, even xDirect contains a built-in web-server enabling access and configuration of a device via a standard web browser on a PC, smartphone or a tablet tablet.
xDirect is available in 3 versions – XDT2321002-01-S with the RS232 interface and a power supply adaptor (through a mini USB-B connector), XDT4851002-01-S with the RS232/422/485 interface and a power supply adapter and XDT10P0-01-S with the RS232/422/485 interface and the possibility to be powered via PoE (supplied without a power supply adaptor).
Detailed information will provide you the xDirect flyer, xDirect Quick start and xDirect user guide.

One of the most interesting shield that you can mount on the Arduino platform is certainly the ethernet shield, because enable numerous networking applications such as remote control of systems and users, web access and publication of data, and more yet, the simplicity of finding and integrating open-source libraries on Arduino IDE does the rest. The usefulness of LAN connectivity has meant that the market would respond by offering different ethernet shield, first of all the original Arduino Ethernet Shield, which was accompanied by the good shield by Seeed Studio, both of these circuits are based on the chipset WIZnet W5100, allow multiple socket connections and can work at 100 Mbps

Luca explains how to boot your PC with a Wake on Lan command sent from an Arduino. Setup the WOL feature on your PC, then use the sendWOL() command to send a magic packet via and ENC28J60 ethernet chip: [via]
The wake command is issued sending on the network a specific packet, called Magic Packet. This packet is receved by all the devices connected to local network because it presents – as destination MAC address – the broadcast address (FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF). It includes six bytes valued FF, followed by the target PC’s MAC address repeated 16 times.

This device captures the IP address of your network and it publish on site DynDNS.com. All without PC. It allow a remote access to your LAN even if the IP address of the connections changes. If you don’t want to use the software provided by DynDNS, and then leave the PC switched on continuously, the solution is this project. Our device queries the site http://checkip.dyndns.com/ to know the IP currently used for the connection, and then publish your free account to www.dyndns.com instead of the computer acquired the new IP. Such a device therefore allows to locate a LAN connected to the Internet via a router or modem network. All schematics file, pcb anche arduino sketch on

mBeduino is an mBed board that can be connected with Arduino Shields. mBeduino board contains: USB-A, LAN RJ-45, SD or microSD, CAN driver MCP2551, XBee or XBee PRO, Arduino Shield socket, I2C EEPROM socket, RTC backup capacitor and DC input (6～12V). It comes from Japan and joins the worlds of mbed and Arduino.

This project is a LAN cable tester able to check any type of LAN cables (straight or cross). Using this tool you are able to check for possible faults on LAN cables. Just connect the cable and watch the led glow one by one. If there is a faulty cable then the corresponding led won’t light. Check schematic on the link below.

Use a 5v DPDT relay, a few 3.5mm stereo sockets and an Ethernet-capable Arduino to create a simple audio switch which would allow me to switch one audio source (my PC’s Soundcard in this case) to one of two outputs (headphones or speakers) via a web interface running on the Arduino from the comfort of my web browser.
