If I connect and solder a second ethernet port to the second slot on the Sam460ex can it be made to work?

Are you planning to let your Sam460 act as a router, or what do you plan to use it for?

No, if i remember correctly only the first port works while the second not, we have the same issue also on Sam440 ...

@All ...

This is specifically a limitation of the ppc440ep_eth.device and equivalent sam460ex drivers being written to only work with ONE of the two ports

(Unit 0 and Unit 1 are mutually exclusive to select which)

This has been explained to me on the hyperion forums...

even *after* I asked if it was a software or hardware limitation (if it is only software... an updated driver could be made to work with both ports imho...if a hardware limitation... ugh)

However no one has answered my asking which form of limitation it actually is...

Maybe this will be on the "todo list" and get an update sometime?
or will a non-os developer need to actively write a replacement?
