    Default Ethernet

    Not sure where to put this. This year I am going to be using a bunch of GECE ESPixel sticks and also a San Devices E6802. When I output from my FPP, do I just run one ethernet cable to a standard ethernet switch, and then hook up my wireless AP and the E6802 to the switch? Or do I need 2 ethernet outputs from the FPP? One for wireless and one for the E6802?

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    Yes, that should work. Further, do not use WIFI and wired on the FPP at the same time. I'd picked wired only and not use WIFI on the FPP, if possible.

    You mean the built in wifi on the FPP?

    Do you need to use a switch?, I thought just ethernet to the AP would be ok

    The AP will be outside. If I use a switch I can run a shorter cat 5 to me E682 for my mega tree.
