Having gained some exposure to the subject with tweaking Ps3 settings, and also having dabbled a bit in WEP key auditing with Backtrack, I find that this is not enough knowledge to carry me through my learning curve to successfully build a suitable network for my Arduino project. I believe I have Googled nearly every possible word combination on to find what would be the best way for my project to be easily remotely accessed, and for what I want, all leads come here to ThingSpeak, and since this is my first post, "Hello All!!"

My project is simple. It's just a Freetronics EtherMega (Mega 2650 w/Ethernet) that I soldered my Chronodot (DS3231) RTC to, on pin A2 is a DHT22 climate sensor and pins 30-37 control relays. The relays actuate in accordance with time or climatic conditions as per my sketch.

I want the RTC time, sensor data and relay states sent over the internet to a website. I also want the website to have clickable buttons to also actuate those relays so the site would need to be the server, rendering the Arduino as client? Ultimately I want this to connect to a website that I own and control, but I need to learn a bunch more, and aside from finding my way here, I am still having the same problems in locating good descriptive or foundational materials relating to the networking aspect of my project.

To give a bit more background, I am a jack of all trades type, but am relatively new to micro electronics. I've been learning Arduino stuff for about a year now, and following the circuitry has been relatively easy for me thus far. Coding I am struggling, but have put together a somewhat functioning sketch that has just one more bug to work out. I learned a lot, but not yet enough and am hoping for links to explanations of the networking sketch code, the various files that may need to be loaded to the microSD, files that are saved in the website's registry, and how they all communicate back and forth. I have been avidly researching this topic and have made little headway.

Please help a hungry newb take it to the next level.
