    Samples are on the way and they said the new module will be "available in the end of November at global/local
    distributors." I have no idea what the cost will be but if its close I will make the switch (or accommodate both) in future versions.

    Wiznet came through and the samples arrived today. When I can a little time I will start playing around with the W5200.

    I just looked up the retail price on this module and its $19.99, so I think I'm going to move to this for all future designs.

    I checked Saelig about a week ago or so and it wasn't listed, but I see it there now. Have you played with this at all yet? I'd be interested in working with you on a driver if nobody has done it yet.

    Haven't started using it yet. My plan is to mock up a PropController Relay board, get DMX working, and then swap out DMX for the new Wiznet module. If we can get a good driver I plan to post it to not only the PropController site but also the Parallax OBEX.

    I started the driver last night. I decided to go through the W5100 driver and make the changes to it to make it compatible with the W5200. No promises on timeline yet but at least I have a start.

    I've started porting the W5100 driver from Parallax to the W5200. The code seems functional I can read and write to the chip but I can't ping the module, waiting for a reply from Wiznet on this matter.

    Once I'm over that hurdle I will crank up the speed on the SPI code. If memory serves the W5100 SPI speed was 4Mhz, the W5200 can do 80Mhz.
