Description: We’ve revised the board by adding some LED indicators and also improving the overall performance of the board. This is a breakout board for the RN-131C WiFly GSX module, an ultra-low power 802.11b/g transceiver. This board breaks out all pins of the RN-131C to two 17-pin 0.1" pitch headers. Board comes fully assembled and tested as pictured.
Dimensions: 1.2x1.8" (headers are separated by 1.1")

Once you navigate the difficulty getting this board working, it is stable and works well. The issue is for non-expert makers like myself that need good tutorials and examples to get comfortable with the board. Unfortunately, Sparkfun’s “tutorial” is for a different board, the shield version and doesn’t have any info about pinouts. Additionally, none of the Arduino libraries for this board actually work.
If you are a highly experienced programmer then you will enjoy this board’s features and stability. but if you just want to get something that works without a lot of effort, I would recommend another wifi board with more support and tutorials.
