    In my local network I can connect to my fix pc with my laptop via Teamviewer and start up SDRconsole.

    The audio is coming in my laptop so I can RX QO-100 when I sit in the garden

    I cannot TX, how can I enable TX to be qrv from the garden ? (I checked some videos but no luck)

    Thanks in advance for info.

    Thanks for reply but I didn't express myself well.

    My pluto is now connected to my PC via USB running SDRconsole.

    I want to connect the Pluto directly to my lan.

    The pluto is connected by a USB OTG adapter cable to the USB Ethernet adapter. By the additional port of the Y cable the USB - Ethernet adapter and the pluto are powered by a 5V power supply.

    The Pluto is not been seen in the network.

    I followed the instructions of DD1US, you can find the info via following link: Connecting the ADALM Pluto to the Local Area Network v4.pdf (

    I discussed this with Matthias during Ham Radio Fair last weekend in Friedrichshafen, we think it could be a driver problem.

    All info welcome.

    I have a GTMEDIA USB to Network Adapter, it's working on Windows but not on Linux.

    My Pluto did not recognize the adapter, so I need to install these drivers.

    How can I install these drivers on my Pluto ?

    Thanks for help.

    Tnx for your input, the ethernet to usb is working when direct connect into the usb port of my pc, I think the OTG adapter cable is faulty, the power side i working, but the data side not I think.

    If anyone has suggestions where to buy a good OTG cable with power lead let me know.

    When I connect the ethernet to usb adapter straight to the pc I get my ip adress.

    When I connect the ethernet to usb to the otg calble and connect it to my pluto, I don't get the ip adress, the otg cable has a power cable that gives power to the pluto and that is working.

    So maybe the OTG side that go to the USB to Ethernet is faulty

    My pluto cannot connect to the network.

    I followed the instructions from DD1US Mathias.

    I bought following items:

    USB 2.0 OTG adapter cable with external power input and a usb-ethernet adapter

    I changed the config.txt as discribed.

    I also saw a video that is posted over that item.

    I also filled in a IP adres in [USB_ETHERNET], even with a blank IP adress it's not working.

    USB connection pluto to pc and SDRconsole is working ok.

    All help is welcome
