Many people are asking about Ethernet on the Gen2 Starlink router. My article about the Ethernet adapter is also quite popular. Let’s see how we can bring this port back to the router.

Initial analysis of the Starlink router gen2
It was fun to do reverse engineering of the original Starlink router. The article was also well received. Sure, it would be great to do the same thing with the new Starlink router gen2. It’s not easy to get new hardware, but why should this stop the fun?
Reverse engineering of the Starlink Ethernet adapter
The new generation of the Starlink terminal was released at the end of 2021. The Dishy antenna is square now, and a completely redesigned indoor unit combines a WiFi router and power supply. The new design should be more cost-effective, so there is no AUX Ethernet port on the router, only WiFi. Later SpaceX released an official Ethernet adapter that…
Analysis and reverse-engineering of the original Starlink router
While waiting for my Dishy, I decided to find and buy the Starlink router separately. Sure, it might be just a WiFi router, but it was very curious what’s inside. Spoiler: there are some interesting implementation details. Lucky enough, I found the router on eBay. It’s the first generation of the router. Currently, it’s impossible to buy (separately) the second…
Hacking Bluetooth speaker/FM radio firmware
I have a little Bluetooth speaker/FM radio. This speaker is not perfect, but it is nice for its price. Except for a few annoying things regarding sound notifications. I decided to “fix” those issues. A little bit of reverse engineering was involved.
