E series and F/G series Ethernet Difference
Good to hear that the Enet port goes directly to the OBD port when originally equipped.:
Ethernet in the E Series is only up to
transferring maps and data to disk,
this is the information in ISTA D,
Ethernet (DoIP ) in the F and G series
it’s a communication interface
it is started by connecting pin 8
(the ethernet port itself is inactive, without connecting the pin 8)
in ENET it is a resistor of 511 ohm 0.6W (to pin 16) + 12V
it does not require electronics, just an Ethernet cable and you can connect
like two computers
The Orange ethernet connector does not have an Eth_A pin, HSD cables have only four pins, and that four pins ar RX+/- and TX+/-.
therefore i think this connection is either always on, or will be activated via software.
i also came to a conclusion that there has to be some kind of switching fabric buit in into the CIC, because basically there are now three possible physical ethernet connections.
* OBD2 connector -> CIC Quadlock
* Glovebox USB Connector via DUB-E100
* HSD Cable -> RSE
