    Would this upgrade work with the E681's that had the upgraded wiznet?

    It should work, the upgrade PCB requires a USB to Ethernet adapter and doesn't use the wiznet module.

    This is very cool. I'm probably going to order one and build it to learn.

    Finally received the 3 pin connectors I ordered from China on the weekend and put together a board in an hour or so.
    Scott, I just wanted to say that your instructions were very well laid out and everything went without a hitch.
    The 2 pin connector holes for 5V power were too small for the connector, just shaved the legs down to fit.
    Soldering a board is like therapy for me, I love it.....I have 4 more blank boards and I may just build them for the heck of it.
    Wonder if anyone would trade a BOM for an E682?

    My boards are finally in the states, but I'm still waiting on a few parts from China. Can't wait to get this thing built!

    By the way, for the PocketBeagle connection, how many of you are soldering the male header pins to the main board and how many are using the female headers? Trying to decide which way to go...

    Definitely solder the female connectors onto the board, what if the PB was blown? If you wanted to replace it, you would have to unsolder the pins before removing.
    Using Female pins on the board makes it easy to swap out the PB.

    Oh, I'm sorry, I wasn't clear on what I was asking. I didn't mean solder just the male headers to both the pocketbeagle AND the mainboard, I was thinking about swapping the way it is done from the instructions and using the male headers on the board and the female headers on the PB, instead of the female headers on the board and male headers on the PB. Just wondering if there's a preference and why?
