I'm an engineering student trying to get started with my senior project Basically, I want to communicate with a bunch of devices (and th Internet) using Ethernet. I did some research and found a fe micro-controllers with built-in Ethernet capabilities. However, thes require separate programmers that are quite costly. So I'm thinking o using a regular PIC chip that I can program using one of the programmer in our school lab. However, my biggest problem is to find a way to get PIC chip to communicate through Ethernet. Do you have any ideas o information as to how to get this to work? Any input would be greatl appreciated.
