@Filipe-Madureira Yes, as expected. Onion's Ethernet Expansion provides only wired 10/100 network connectivity via a standard Ethernet cable.
Power over Ethernet
Power over Ethernet or PoE describes any of several standard or ad-hoc systems which pass electric power along with data on twisted pair Ethernet cabling. This allows a single cable to provide both data connection and electric power to devices...
Here you are an example Omega PoE Dock
I think this dock is too compact, too complicated, too expensive.
If I remember well @luz has made a nice custom dock with (P)PoE capabilities - with an appropriate Ethernet jack and some ~5 .. 39V to 3.3V (or 5V) voltage converter. Unfortunetely I can't find this post.
That command will completely disable Ethernet PHY, isn't it? It is the way, but I already use EPHY in my design, so no.
No, the ephy label in omega2-ctrl is misleading, it does not control ethernet phys, just the LED.
See AGPIO_CFG register for enabling/disabling ephys 1..4 (all together either ephy or GPIO, unfortunatly it is not possible to selectively enable only one of them -. ephy0 however can be used separately, with ephy1..4 in GPIO mode).
When I was designing a PCB for Omega 2S, I haven't had all the docs, and as a result I've used some of I2S pins, almost all SPI pins, etc. (literally, all the pins that could cause boot and other problems when they are pulled up/down) as a GPIO.
I was in the same situation a while ago when trying to find a usable wiring of my first Omega2 and Omega2S circuits, with all those various constraints...
@Maximilian-Gerhardt I was thinking to remove the jack and solder to the points. I didn't know about Ethernet ports having integrated transformers though. I found a close-up of the board and I see a transformer after, but it would be hard to know for sure without taking one apart.
Assuming the transformer is on the board and not the port, would that work?
Basically, instead of connecting the Omerga2's Ethernet port to a Modem, it's connected directly to a Web Server with a static IP. See attached diagram.
I can connect my phone to the AP, but when I type in the web address (192.168.1.250) I get a message saying can't reach that page.
