    Default ESPixelStick with ethernet

    Is there away to run a ESPixelStick v3 off a ethernet cable and not wifi. If so how?
    Not sure about running my show with wifi. I use my pixelstick as standalone props and thinking I would like too use one of them to work about 105 ws2811 pixels on another display prop.
    Thanks for any help I can get

    The problem is, you need an ESP32 to get access to Ethernet. The ESP8266 does not have enough pins to make it work. ESPixelStick V4 DOES support ethernet.

    2022 - Not sure yet. At least two new songs.
    2021 New Tune-to sign. New 40x27 matrix at the house. Retiring the Strip based matrix. Updating some of the old window frames to the new house. Adding two new songs.
    2020 Full sized show reworked for the new location. Only adding (famous last words) 13 RBLs that I finally got converted to using pixels
    2019 - Just moved into a new home (yet another change of plans). Will be dim but not dark. Too much to do at the new place to leave time for a show. Dim show (3000 pixels) had regular visits most nights.

    I assume an Arduino Uno running ethernet shield wouldn't work.
