As the previous attempt to turn off the 2…4Ghz WiFi and switch to ATT data only sim card failed. I wanted to try using Ethernet over the OTG which would be great since i can still use all the TCP options for getting data from the base allow it to get correction over the internet and stream RTCM correction out over TCP as well.
We don’t have direct support for such adapters but a while ago, we tested Reach M2 with the TP-Link UE200 and it worked. We didn’t change anything in the software ever since so I suppose it should work with Reach fine.
I found many USB to ethernet that works the issue is a bit different.
My intent was to find a POE ethernet that can both give ethernet connection and keep the base running, but i found out that the base OTG doesn’t work when the unit is being charged for some reason.
when connected to regular ethernet it will work and get the base connected and running while draining the base battery, but once connected to POE port on the other side as soon as the base starts charging it loses the ethernet connectivity.
if you can solve that issue in the firmware this adapter will be able to both charge and provide ethernet.
We don’t have such a device to test but we can check the Full system report from the receiver to see if we can find anything explaining why it works this way. Please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org so we could analyze it.
