Important note regarding support of Digilent PmodWifi modules with EM Starter Kit and embARC

The embARC Software comes with a fully integrated device driver for the Digilent PmodWifi 802.11g module using the Microchip MRF24WG0MA Wifi radio transceiver module.

The Digilentinc.com website still references a PmodWifi 802.11b module but in fact Digilent support has confirmed that users ordering this part number (the only PmodWifi available to order) from Digilentinc.com website will always receive the PmodWifi 802.11g module using the Microchip MRF24WG0MA Wifi radio transceiver module.

embARC software does NOT provide driver support for the older PmodWifi 802.11b module using the Microchip MRF24WB0MA Wifi radio transceiver module, however some Digilent distributors around the world may still have inventory of this older module and may ship this module to EM Starter Kit users ordering a PmodWifi from one of these distributors.

We therefore recommend that users strictly order any PmodWifi modules from the Digilentinc.com website using link below to ensure you receive the correct PmodWifi module using the Microchip MRF24WG0MA Wifi radio transceiver module for use with embARC.
