Connect Ultra96 Board to LAN

Jump to solution

Hi Everyone,

I have a project with Ultra96 Board. I have a question.

I want to connect board to LAN and I know we have three ways:

1)Use a USB Ethernet connection over the Micro-USB (upstream USB connection)
2)Connect via Wifi.

3)Using board as a computer

But I don't know, Can I connect board to LAN through USB port. I have read some information but I don't see anything about USB port.
Can you give me some information about USB port or Micro USB and compare performance between USB - ethernet and Micro USB ethernet.

Thank you very much,

vanloc,

WiFi is the easiest way to connect the Ultra96 to a LAN. This post contains the info you need to set that up:

For a wired connection, the USB-Ethernet dongle is the recommended option. You can also buy the Ethernet mezzanine card for the Ultra96 that comes with working example designs (source code on Github) and documentation here: 96B Quad Ethernet Mezzanine

Hi Voyager,

I don't Login in this forum for a long time,

Thank you very much about your answer,

My method:

1/ I am using Micro USB to connect Ultra96 to PC 
2/ I have activated the Ethernet gadget(RNDIS) protocol at Petalinux before building for Ultra96
3/ I just need "enable modprobe g_ether" then I can use MicroUSB to communicate between PC and Ultra96
