Wired ethernet for ESP32

Post by aoaooo » Mon Jun 29, 2020 9:46 am

Hello,

is it possible to use wired ethernet with ESP32 boards (Wemus Lolin D32 Pro), for example with a ethernet shield?
I tried to search through this forum and on the internet, but now I'm more confused than before :D

Thanks
Yannik

Yes, although I haven't tried this myself, if the shield is specifically using the ESP32 ethernet peripheral, rather than an external one (i.e. it's just a PHY rather than a whole MAC over SPI like a Wiznet or something).

One thing to be aware of is that it's currently only supported by the firmware built with IDF 3.3.

And which device would that be? I couldn't find a specific device (only a Wiznet W5500 which seems not the rigth one).
