Hello!
I followed the Thingspeak tutorial for connecting an arduino with Thingspeak, but instead of sending the data every 30 seconds like it says in the code, it's only sending it once every 5 minutes. Is there anything that might be causing that? I'm just using the code from the tutorial.

Thanks for the help!

Nevermind. When I comment out the lines for reading my sensor data, then it's able to connect to Thingspeak and update on time. Something about my sensor data code must be somehow causing the program to act strangely.

The strange thing is that it connects successfully to Thingspeak once every 5 minutes, even though there's nothing about a 5-minute interval anywhere in the code.

It looks like it was related to the DHT11 sensor and code, and it looks like other people on this forum have had similar problems with the DHT11 or DHT22.

I tried this alternative code (http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php/topic,155800.0.html) that's supposed to work better for timing, but it still didn't work.
