Topic: Ethernet

Have yall thought about adding an Ethernet port for the people out there who do not have a wireless connection available for them? It doesn't seem like it would be to hard to implement this in.

Re: Ethernet

Well, you can certainly add a USB Ethernet NIC to the external port.

However, we chose Wifi because we didn't think it was reasonable to expect folks to route Cat5 to the places where we hope people will want to use their chumbys (bedroom, kitchen, etc).  Of course, there would also be the cost of the extra circuitry, connectors etc. and you have to stop somehere or end up pricing yourself out of the market.
