ADK / Ethernet Shield Problem Solved!

Fixed! A quick trip to Radio Shack for some hookup wire (22 gauge, solid) and I manually wired the ICSP pins from the Ethernet Shield and now I have a web server that's just a bit bigger than a deck of cards.

Here is the ISCP pin mapping to the ADK pins for future reference:

(MISO) 50 <-- 1 o o 2 --> +5V
(SOCK) 52 <-- 3 o o 4 --> 51 (MOSI)
RESET <-- 5 o o 6 --> GND

Only pins 1,3 and 5 need to be connected (orange wires in the picture). The Ethernet shield still works if you leave pins 2, 5 and 6 disconnected (red, yellow and green wires in picture).

  1. I have done this, but I cannot upload sketches to the ADK with the ethernet shield connected. With pins 1, 3 and 4 connected the ethernet shield works as expected. Does pin 5, reset need to be connected?

    Currently I have to remove the shield to upload new sketches to it. Any ideas?
