W5100 chip garbage output

I've got my hands on an Arduino + W5100 ethernet chip. This allows an Arduino to communicate with other clients over an ethernet connection.

When I compiled the example in Arduino however, there is one noticeable bug that is resolved in the newest ethernet library distribution:

http://code.google.com/p/arduino/issues/detail?id=605&start=200

The other thing is that the example code contains: if ( client == true ) , which can be replaced by a simpler ( if client ).

After these fixes, the W5100 behaves properly. On to the next challenge!
