  WiFi 7697 LED control
  If the IP address of your shield is yourAddress:
  http://yourAddress/R to light red
  http://yourAddress/G to light green
  http://yourAddress/B to light blue
  http://yourAddress/W to light white
  http://yourAddress/o to turn off LED

  Circuit:
    LinkIt 7697 HDK
    RGB LED (common cathode) 
    R - LinkIt D11
