Configure Network Settings for Arduino Ethernet Shield

You can configure the network settings for the Arduino® Ethernet Shield on the Configuration Parameters dialog box. To do so, select Arduino Ethernet Shield properties.

To configure the network settings for the Arduino® Ethernet Shield:

  1. Open the Configuration Parameters dialog box. Under Arduino Ethernet Shield properties, specify the IP address for the Arduino Ethernet Shield.

    When you specify the Ethernet IP address, follow these guidelines:

    • IP address must be in the 4 octet format. For example, 192.168.0.20.

    • When connected to a computer, the IP address of the Arduino Ethernet Shield and the IP address of the computer must be in the same range so they can communicate with each other.

      However, make sure they are different.

    • When connected to a router, the IP address must be in the valid range of the supported IP addresses and must not be in the filtered list for that router.

  2. Specify the MAC (Media Access Control) address, the physical network address for the Arduino Ethernet Shield in MAC address for the Arduino Ethernet Shield.

    When you specify the Ethernet MAC address, follow these guidelines:

    • MAC address must be in the 6 octet format. For example, DE:AD:BE:EF:FE:ED

    • If the Arduino hardware is connected to a router, the MAC address must not be in the filtered list for that router.
