General Discussion / Cubietruck second ethernet
December 30, 2013, 10:24:16 am
Having that second ethernet would at least make the ct a viable solution for me, and almost cost effective.

In other posts, I have been told it is there, just not pined out?  Is there anyway to get access to it?

I really can't afford a Utilite Standard ($159) and a Netgear WNR854T means OpenWRT instead of Fedora.
Not much of a case.  I would want something better to put at my parent's home.  Maybe not as sleek as the Utilite, but close.

Oh, and cables for the drive that will fit into such a case!  No room for your 'standard'  6in (15cm) sata cable.
Is there a case that can also hold a 2.5" sata drive?

Would make for a nice little server.

For these applications, port speed is not an issue.  100Mb would be just fine.  Since I work in IEEE 802.1, ETSI NFV, and ONF, I am quite aware of what has to be done to maintain high speed switching between ports at bridging and routing layers.  I don't need that here.  And much of the overhead is in too many buffer moves as well....

The limit of USB is well known.  That is why I was hoping to find ethernet on a developers card for direct interface.  :)

I would settle for getting that 2nd ethernet mentioned to a proper RJ45 jack and configurable (In Fedora 20 please!).  Then I would add 3 USB 100Mb dongles, using one for the WAN side.

That is a bummer.  It would seem that the developers board could be used to place some ethernet chips and rj45 jacks.

Meanwhile, what would it take to add an rj45 jack for that second ethernet on the A20?  Perhaps, again on the developers board?  Even 2 ethernets make it interesting for a firewall.

Is it possible to add 4 ethernet ports via one of the development boards?  And have them recognized by Fedora?

I want to make a few router/firewalls and I need 1 WAN and 4 LAN ports (and those LAN ports will be VLANed to boot).

Of course it the option is more than 4 ports, I will take it!
