Olimex esp32-poe ethernet support?

Post by backsy » Thu Jan 17, 2019 4:18 pm

Is the olimex board supported with its poe ethernet?

I would rather like that board as an upgrade from a quick and dirty wifi enabled hack to a cabled solution and hey, it even sorts out the power input. Would like to have that capability while keeping the code nearly equal for a board with and without ethernet. The olimex board was the cheapest i found, might there be any cheaper solutions on the market?

Hi !
I have this board from Olimex but it doesn't work for me :|
...
lan = network.LAN(mdc=machine.Pin(23), mdio=machine.Pin(18), power=machine.Pin(12), phy_addr=1)
lan.active(True)

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
OSError: ethernet enable failed
...
I have tried many options (phy_addr=0/1, power=None, ...) without success.

Anyone with this problem?
Thanx !
