Does Ethernet or Wifi Require the USB OTG on Rev C?

In the BeagleBoard System Reference Manual Rev C2, it says:

10.7 USB to Ethernet
There are several USB to Ethernet adapters on the market and Figure 70
shows a few of
these devices. These devices can easily add Ethernet connectivity to
BeagleBoard by
using the USB OTG port in the host. This will require a special cable
to convert the
miniAB connector to a Type A or a hub can also be used. These are
provided as examples
only. Check BeagleBoard.org for information on devices that have
drivers available for
them.

Is this just unrevised from the Rev B manual, or does Ethernet and/or
Wifi actually need the USB OTG port, instead of the regular USB port
that was added for Rev C?

Also in the manual, it says:

8.9.5 OTG USB Connector
The OTG USB interface is accessed through the miniAB USB connector. If
you want to
use the OTG port as a USB Host, pin 4 of the connector must be
grounded. The Rev C2
version of Beagle provides jumper pad, J6 that allow for a small piece
of solder to be
placed on the pads to perform this function. It should be noted, that
with the addition of
the USB Host port on the Rev C2 Beagle, the need to convert the OTG
port to a host
mode is greatly diminished.

We have one of these USB hubs with the Ethernet port:

We haven't managed to get it to work yet, but the question is should
this or a USB wifi adapter work on the standard USB port, or do we
actually need to solder J6 and use the USB OTG port?

Thanks...

You can use either the OTG or the EHCI ports with Rev. C boards. The OTG port can only supply 100mA max current which would generally be enough for a USB-to-Ethernet dongle, but probably not for wireless. You can still use the OTG port if you like, you’d just need to use a powered USB hub.

It would be much simpler to use the other (EHCI) USB port as this doesn’t require any special cables or soldering. And finally, yes, that hub should be fine…

Thanks for the reply.

It turns out that the Android port right now doesn't support the EHCI
port, only the OTG port.

After I wrote the original post, I got the Angstrom demo running, and
both the USB keyboard and USB to Ethernet hub worked just fine, so it
was safe to conclude that it was a problem with the Android port at
this point.
