HI, All

There is ESP8266 project that sends HTTP-requests to a server via WiFi connection to a WiFi-router.
Router is to be placed far from ESP8266 sensor boards.
And now - there is a task to make a mobile sensor version where the router part is to be placed together with ESP8266 in a single case.
ESP B4R project code is big and complex, and better to preserve it.

But how to communicate with a server from ESP8266 by HTTP-requests ... by wire, not by WiFi ?

with ethernet shield, connected with rWire or serial

Thanks Erel, for reply. But how does it look in B4R code that HTTP-requests, prepared for HTTPJob module are sent to an Ethernet shield ?
Do we have B4R lib for ENC28J60 shield ?

Ha ! :)
Theoretically solved: to stream WiFi signal directly from one antenna output to a router's WiFi-antenna socket by .... cable, via some attenuator :)
Will try...

If to use the WiFi antenna on the EPS, but the cut cable of the WiFi router antenna - they work OK together in one point. And a client at 5 meters apart is not visible.
