    Missing Icons

    Looks like you're on a laptop with relatively low resolution. The missing icons will be off screen. Maybe try moving some of the toolbars around so the end one moves towards the left?

    Change of IP address with button and LCD display Ethernet Shield Arduino

    Storing the IP address in the EE is trivial. The user interface harder to implement.

    Speaker setup

    Cut the red and black wires at the transformer (block thing bolted down) and use them to connect to your amplifier. You could run a new 2-core cable in or use 2 or the 3 cores from the existing grey cable. Extra points for showing the markings on the transformer terminals where you removed the...
