You’ll find PDF schematics and Arduino client/server samples on Github. Note they had to modify the Ethernet library for Arduino for the Web server sample, so you’d have to copy libdeps directory from Github into the libraries directory of your Arduino IDE installation.

ESP32 T-Lite board is sold for $9.43 on Aliexpress with unsoldered female headers, and you’d need to add an extra $4.93 to get the Ethernet expansion board.

  1. @ CNX do not know if it is my browser but the recent comments seems stuck on tim and itchy Pi 4 posts?

    1. It’s not your browser, it happens to me quite often as well, so I don’t look at them anymore. Also post validation is sometimes very slow (10 seconds or more), there are definitely a few technical issues, but that’s off-topic for this post.

    2. Thanks for letting me know.I changed the cache plugin on Sunday, but I’m not sure if it’s related since it was not updated for me either and as an admin I don’t get served cached pages. Any it should be working now.

  2. So, they took a chip with an ethernet interface, didn’t use it, and added on an SPI connected one? For reasons?

    1. I suspect they did it to leave it as an option on GPIOs that can otherwise be repurposed for anything else. Actually they might have added the ethernet after the esp32 module was designed.
