Title: 5 port Ethernet Switch/Hub
Post by: Larry on March 30, 2014, 02:56:28 PM
I did some digging around and finally found a 5 port Ethernet Hub that they claim runs off 5vdc.  I ordered it and when it comes in, I will verify it and start building on the PiCam Network.  

The one I currently have runs off 9vdc.  I opened it up to see if maybe I could bypass something the get it to work off 5vdc, but no such luck.  

I also ordered a RJ-45 bulkhead mount jack to mount on the outside of the package.  That should give us access to the Pi's from a laptop.

I will keep ya'll updated when the hardware arrives and as I integrate it.
