Ethernet speed of Vero2?


I’m thinking about getting a Vero 2. One information that I wasn’t able to get: What speed will I get on the ethernet port? Is it as slow as on the (old) Raspberries, where ethernet goes via slow USB?

I’d like to have fast ethernet because the vero will be a vnsi client (epg update and channel list transfer takes ages via slow network) and because I want fast library updates. I know that the slow speed is sufficient for video streaming.


The Ethernet is set up via a separate PHY and is not connected via USB.

It’s Fast Ethernet (100Mbps). You will be able to get 100Mbps. Quick test – other people using the network and suboptimal TCP window size.

osmc@osmc-Cortland:~$ iperf -c
Client connecting to, TCP port 5001
TCP window size: 20.7 KByte (default)
[  3] local port 40369 connected with port 5001
[ ID] Interval       Transfer     Bandwidth
[  3]  0.0-10.0 sec  99.5 MBytes  83.3 Mbits/sec

Many thanks, just what I wanted :slight_smile:
