Wifi Shield + 2.8 TFT Shield

by 32teeth on Sun Jan 20, 2013 7:55 pm

Hi there,

I have managed to make my Wifi Shield work (both UNO R3 and Leonardo)
I have managed to make my 2.8 TFT Shield work (both UNO R3 and Leonardo)

I cannot for the life of me get both Wifi + 2.8 TFT to work together on either board (UNO R3 or Leo)

Advice? Anyone tried this? I have search hi and low, no dice.

Hardware.
Wifi Shield (authentic arduino one)
2.8 TFT (authentic adafruit one)

thanks in advace

The TFT shield uses a LOT of pins, so there are likely some pin conflicts. Look up the pin utilization on the WiFi shield and compare that with what is used by the TFT. http://learn.adafruit.com/2-8-tft-touch-shield

Sometimes it is possible to re-map pins, but it usually involves some cut & jumper work on the board.

Hi 32teeth,
Did you find a solution to this? I'm trying to do the same thing. I've had some success but it's a little bit spotty...
