Is it possible in any way adding the 2nd ethernet interface to the OPI boards?
I was figuring out on how to replace my PC running router and other server applications with the OPI board.
The lack of the 2nd ethX is quite a constraint for that kind of use.

Use a USB3 GLAN adapter to get up to 300mbps on the USB 2.0 ports. Enjoy.

Thnks. I thought about USB-LAN adapter. The cost is abt 7 USD on top. Probably for this new project it is worth buying a new SCB with 2 eth interfaces.

This is still an expensive solution and probably too much of a hassle for regular use.
It can meet only specific cases.

I'm on the same boat. Now happily using a $2 usb-ethernet dongle. But it's not elegant. I'd rather pay $5 more for a built-in ethernet port.
