I have seen several modules around, and want to know which one you have
used, and liked. Not really looking for a dev board...I build my
own...looking for a module to do the ethernet work...building a prototype
for multiple unitsfor some home automation fun stuff. (Wired ethernet is my
plan)

Thanks in advance for any opinions shared!

You want a module, but not a dev board... the difference being size?  Or
are you really wanting the controller chips?

Here are some Ethernet proto boards that you can add to an existing kit.
  http://www.edtp.com/ Fred writes for Circuit Cellar and will usually
sell loose parts in small quantity if you're wanting to build it on your
own board.

The TCP software is no small trick.  There are several open source, or
you can go for Bentham's book TCP/IP Lean (excellent), which includes a
PIC IP stack for personal use.

Hi, and thanks for the reply.

All of the dev boards I have looked at contain a load of additional 'crap'
which I don't want.  I guess I really am looking for controller chips, when
you get down to it. :-)

I have a lot of experience with writing my own TCP/IP s support, so I "have
no fear". I actually have a few of the open source ones I pulled down to
look at when I started my crazy idea.

I was mostly looking for for someone's experience who has a done a project
with one of the available boards out there...I like to use equipment that is
referred by others...makes me assume things will go well!

I'll check out the link below (I think I have actually been there already)

If you don't want all of the additional 'crap' then goto www.picmodules.com.
Simple & small.

There was nothing to do with Ethernet anywhere on this site, that I could
find. Wrong URL? or did you misunderstand what I was asking?

thanks for the attempted assist!
