And Good news!, Yes! our WiFi shield comes complete with support to use the existing Arduino Ethernet library!

Technical Details at a Glance

On board logic level shifters provide true 3.3V compatibility for SD Card and other on board peripherals Built in SPI/I2C-UART Bridge frees’ up the dedicated Arduino UART for other Shields/Devices Flexible GB-Links’ allow easy alternate CS and I/O configuration. Unique GB-iMac identification for ‘internet ready’ connectivity. micro SD Card slot for data storage, web pages etc. Support to add an Arduino Pro Mini† External power connector† for standalone operation with On board 3V3 and 5V Voltage regulators. Support for offboard* 4DSystems fantastic serial LCD and OLED modules via 4DSystems standard 5 pin interface (See above). Included libraries and Arduino example code developed especially for out of the box driving of 4D Systems LCD’s using our shield. † These are not officially supported or tested for this revision.
