Harmony 3 and MRF24WG0MA

Hi,
I've spent a good part of the day looking over the Harmony 3 examples and documentation for anything that pertains to Wifi demo programs for the PIC32MZ DAR and have found nothing.
I have a MEB-II v5 and a PIC32MZ DAR starter kit, but I cannot for the life of me find any demo code which shows the operation of the MRF24WG0MA through Harmony 3 or otherwise.
Does anyone know if Microchip has any demo code for this hardware combination, or at least the MRF24WG0MA?
I've looked on the forms, and so far other people have had issues with the same topic in the past, so it's not looking promising.
Thanks,
Ben

Hi,
I'm not sure MRF24WG0MA is supported in Harmony 3...
This is a quite old WiFi module . On the MRF24WG0MA webpage it is mentioned : not recommended for new design.
WINC1500 is probably a better choice if you want to use Harmony 3.
Regards

Thanks RISC,
 
I'll have to investigate the WINC1500 then.
 
Perhaps Microchip should redesign the MEB-II to not include this module or use the WINC1500 instead.
 
It's a bit of a misnomer in my opinion to have the MRF24WG0MA on a showcase board and continue selling it.
 
Unless is there a MEB-III or another board to showcase the PIC32MZ series with graphics, touch, camera, SD card, etc?
