I have this thing in the back of my mind that "the next step" for me must be my robots talking to each other.

separating several sensor values

I´m starting a project were 2 Arduinos comunicate through wireless modules (XBee Pro).


Arduino #1 has two potenciometers and sends their values
Arduino #2 recieves the values like this:

100,230
100,231
100,233
100,234
...

Now I need to separate this values and assign each one to a variable.

How can I add Wifi to my robot?

One thing I've been dreaming of doing for awhile is builting a blimp robot that is controlled over wifi, but I can't seem to find information on is how to connect microcontrollers to some sort of wifi interface. I'm hoping there's some sort of module somewhere that I can interface with.

Here's the plan:
