    Check from sketch if the Ethernet cable is connected

    justRadojko

      Hi,

       

      Is there a way to check, form the sketch, if the Ethernet cable is connected?

       

      I've seen that there is a command that can be sent to Linux using system() commad, but as I'm aware there is no way to get returned value (except to write it on SD card).

       

      According to documentation Ethernet controller is embedded into Quark processor but sketch is using library like for other Arduino boards containing Wiz5100 ethernet chip. Whats the catch with this?

       

      Thanks in advance,

      R
