Thank you both for your quick responses. I have an ethernet 10/100BT
WAN (well, technically a single LAN that covers a large area) and it
would be difficult to signal over USB. But it's still good to know.
If you're curious, I am prototyping a gumstix-based platform. As it
stands, I will be using gumstix connex 200xm + EtherStix + BreakoutGS
mounted onto a proprietary board with serial ports and mechanical
fixtures. It will all go into an off-the-shelf plastic box with the
appropriate holes machined into it.
Mechanically mouting the gumstix has proven to be a good mental
exercise. When the project has matured a little, I'll make sure to post
all of my findings, but I can tell you now that 2mm, self-adhesive
rubber pads have proven to be very useful in this regard.
