Spending so much time looking for good routers for OpenWRT, or SBCs with multiple Gigabit Ethernet has got me wondering "How hard would it be to modifiy the Raspberry Pi 4 circuitboard to add another ethernet controller....".
But modify the board i mean, can I open it in KiCAD and make enough naive guesses to swap the USB controller for an ethernet one. I read that they're both on the secret PCI-3 bus.
@s isn't the raspberry pi board proprietary?
@jookia Oh you're right!
The schematic documents that I thought would contain the board layouts does not 😭
@s Get a USB3 to Gigabit Adapter?
@null0x0 Ohhhh, but wheres the fun in that? 😄
Plus idk if you'd actually get gigabit speeds if you go through the Pi's USB3. I'm not sure if their USB3 impl is actually as fast as USB3 should be.
@s I agree no fun but easier and faster way to get another port
And off course you would have losses with controller and latency.
