Deeper Connect Pico Ports

Go to solution Solved by j1philli,

A USB-C to Ethernet adapter would require a software driver that the Deeper Connect would not have. That goes for any other accessories not provided by Deeper themselves. I wouldn't expect anything to work unless Deeper says it does.

I got a Deeper Connect Pico for a few months now and I followed Deeper's tutorial.

 

Connect the power cable on the side that has a small hole beside the USB port, then the WiFi module on the opposite side of the power cable, then the remaining ports are for LAN.

 

  • What if I connected the power cable on a different USB-C port, will it break?
  • What if I connected a different USB-C accessory, like a USB-C to LAN adapter or connected it to a PC with a USB-C port?

It won't break if you plug anything into any port unless Deeper or the manufacturer of the device you plugged in are inept or went rogue in their implementation of the USB-C standard (cough Nintendo cough). However if you connect devices to different ports there are no guarantees that they'll work. Not all USB-C ports implement everything a USB-C port is capable of, for example you wouldn't expect a video signal if you plugged your phone charger into a USB-C monitor, and if something the device needs is missing it won't work.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

My question is exactly that. Did Deeper went rogue with their USB-C implementation?

 

 

I did experiment with the ports and plugged the WiFi antenna into the LAN port on the Deeper Connect Pico and I also tried plugging the LAN cable/adapter into the WiFi port on the Deeper Connect Pico. Both did not work, but when I plugged them back to the correct ports, they started working again.

 

I now doubt that any 3rd party accessories, like a USB-C to Ethernet adapter, would work. (I hope someone can confirm/test this)
