Just wondering whether in the future the hardware will be equiped with ethernet interface as well.
Would be nice as the length of ethernet cable can be upto 100m/328ft, whereas USB is tops 3m/10ft.
I've currently have a workaround by using USB/ETH <-> ETH/USB interfacing. note: this is not IP capable, just an extender to bridge longer lengths of cabling.
So then by adding a network switch, wiring is much cleaner and simpler to install as well. less usb drivers/ports required on the servers...
Just an idea?
What goes up, must eventually come down!
