2.Setup WIZnet Ethernet Library
Copy the WIZnet library Into the lib folder inside the Raspberry Pi Pico. https://learn.adafruit.com/ethernet-for-circuitpython/circuitpython-setup
Before continuing, make sure your board’s lib folder has at least the following files and folders copied over: https://github.com/Wiznet/RP2040-HAT-CircuitPython
The following serial terminal program is required for HTTP Client test, download and install from below links.
Before this, you should find the Raspberry Pi Pico COM port number from “Device Manager” on your PC.
2. How to WebClient Example
Setup WebClient Example – download https://github.com/Wiznet/RP2040-HAT-CircuitPython/tree/master/examples/HTTP/Webclient
– Press “Ctrl+D” on the terminal window. you can see the messages as follows.
– Use DNS to access the address of the server. After that, it accesses the server in each URL and prints the contents. The text of each URL is as follows.
