    I designed my own PIC32 pcb with a connector for Ethernet interface.
    I couldn't get it to work. The PIC SPI read line didn't do anything.
    I got in touch with microchip and they were baffled too.
    So I scrapped the project.

    They suggested getting a PIC Ethernet starter kit.
    So I got one, programmed it up and that didnt work either !
    I got in touch with microchip and after some toing and froing they admitted there were issues with PIC32MX and their TCPIP harmony software.

    So a bit disappointed with microchip and internet of things.

    Always choose open-source/open-standards over proprietary, and make sure your choice has a strong community backing. That eliminates most of the problem anyway. Arduino, for example, not only meets those requirements but the platform can also be used to program a wide variety of other chips too (including the PIC32MX).
