Hi, I have connected the kit to the EasyWifi board which has MRF24WB0MA wifi module. I just need to ping a website using the wifi chip but I think the code has to be written for the microcontroller. Are there any examples that will help me get started ?

Hi ashag, is this the EasyWiFi board you are talking about (or similiar)?

This is an interesting board it uses 4-wire SPI and UART interface for communication.

The problem is that there is no TCPIP stack for the ATmega 168 or ATmega328 mcu so I do not know if you'd be able to communicate and I doubt you want to write your own TCIP stack.

You can google AVR TCPIP to see what you might find.

I think some of the ATmel 32 bit mcus might have a TCPIP stack.
