Because there's a soho switch on FWA-1010VC, how to identify all those Ethernet ports on this machine would be the frequently asked question. This article will introduce those physical interfaces in detail.
All users which is using Advantech FWA-1010VC series.
Due to SoHo switch design in FWA-1010VC , the OS will have interfaces less than the label on front panel.
In OS : User should recognize 4 I354 devices from PCI list
00:14.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation Ethernet Connection I354 (rev 03)
00:14.1 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation Ethernet Connection I354 1.0 GbE Backplane (rev 03)
00:14.2 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation Ethernet Connection I354 (rev 03)
00:14.3 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation Ethernet Connection I354 (rev 03)
As mentioned above, it appears 4 in total is expected = 2 for dual media ports (note fiber or copper only) , 1 connect to SoHo switch , 1 for port 6 (rightest one on front panel)
The labels on the box :
label 0 : Dual Media 1st port (eth0 in block diagram)
label 1 : Dual Media 2nd port (eth2 in block diagram)
label 2 - 5 : Port for SoHo switch (eth1 the rightest 4 ports from 88E6141)
label 6 : generic Ethernet port (eth3 in block diagram)
Please visit following link for detail behavior on dual media ports (ctrl+click the link or [macos] cmd + click the link)
## Check in OS , User will find the port which connect to SoHo switch is always in "UP" Status, even though front panel port 2 ~ 5 has no cable connected
