Xerox Alto’s 3 Mb/s Ethernet: Building a gateway with a BeagleBone

Monday, January 22nd, 2018

Ken Shirriff documented his experience building a gateway using the BeagleBone single-board computer to communicate with the Alto's Ethernet we covered previously: I decided to build a gateway that would allow the Alto to communicate with a modern system. The gateway would communicate with the Alto using its obsolete 3Mb/s Ethernet,...

Configure your WR703n with a switch (or two)

Saturday, November 22nd, 2014

Martin Melchior has been experimenting with switch-selectable configurations for a TP-Link TL-WR703n router. The setup allows for quick changes in configuration dictated by changes in location or circumstances. It allows the router's use as a Ethernet to WiFi bridge (Access point), since it's handy to have your own WiFi at...

The EthNode – ATMega based Ethernet board

Friday, April 5th, 2013

Mark McKillen shared his EthNode – ATMega based Ethernet board in the forum: Taking inspiration from the good folks at Nanode and an Instructable I saw recently, I’ve come up with “another” AVR based Ethernet board that can be programmed and used like an Arduino. It’s a simple design based on...

App note: Ethernet theory of operation

Sunday, October 7th, 2012

Here is an app note from Microchip describing the basics of Ethernet. It is intended as a reference for people developing Ethernet applications on PIC microcontrollers. Seeing as it's theoretical, most of the article can be applied to other microcontrollers as well. This document specifies the theory and operation of...

Internet Protocol v6 running on MSP430 with ENC28J60

Monday, September 3rd, 2012

[embed][/embed] XPG is developing an IPv6 stack for the MSP430 microcontrollers using the ENC28J60 Ethernet IC for MAC/PHY. He demonstrates his proof-of-concept by having the MSP430 send HTTP requests to a custom PHP server at a push of a button, as seen in the video above. Now, as the 2553...

Editorial: Our friend Microchip and open source

Tuesday, August 30th, 2011

Microchip jumped into open source last spring with the chipKIT Arduino-compatible development boards and open compiler/IDE. They wanted to tap the existing tutorials, enthusiasm, and customer base of Arduino community, and they were going to play nice with open source. A review of the chipKIT situation today is disappointing. The...

Passive ethernet tap spies on network connection

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011

tempmj built a passive ethernet tap for monitoring and debugging network connections: I basically took 4 Panduit brand modular ethernet jacks and wired between two of them normally, other than the fact that the TX pairs from "Side A" looped through an extra jack and the TX pairs from "Side...
