I purchased a cheap Ethernet shield (essentially its a circuit board that you can plug on top of your arduino - kind of like legos) online awhile back and it came in the mail last Saturday. The ethernet shield lets you get your arduino on the internet. It has a small RJ45 jack on it that you plug the cord into and away you go!

So I've been playing on and off with it all week but I'm not having a whole lot of success. After a few minutes the arduino becomes unresponsive and needs to be reset. My dreams of having an internet enabled thermometer are being stopped by something...

I assumed it was the program I wrote but I'm having the same issue with the sample programs.
