@valerionew , yes, you are correct. prior to building a copy of your dock\new i had used a simple rj45 dongle thru usb on expansion dock. first tim i plugged it in i was surprised a bit that omega2+ had recognized it but i found that the action on that web page you link was necessary for the dongle so in building the dock\new i assumed it would be necessary but i was not positive. anyway, thank you for mentioning it.
