My skinny ASUS laptop doesn’t have a Ethernet port. It does have 3 USB ports. Can one use a USB to Ethernet adapter to connect to the Gemini II?  Like the TP

 

TP-Link USB to Ethernet Adapter, Foldable USB 3.0 to 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet LAN Network Adapter, Support Windows 10/8.1/8/7/Vista/XP for Desktop Laptop Apple MacBook Linux and More (Ue300) (TL-UE300) https://www.amazon.c...i_niQaFb0NZ700F

 

or any other suggestions welcomed

You could. Or better yet, add a simple WiFi or Bluetooth adapter to the Gemini-II.

Personally I would go for the Bluetooth adapter. Simpler operation. However you wouldn't be able to get to the Gemini-II internal web server over Bluetooth.

Soooooo, I should have mentioned that I would like to use a guide scope  .  So, can the geminifi2 handle the phd2 communication as well. I’m trying to understand the cables connections.

 

cheers
