ESP32 and W5100 Ethernet

Can you add the w5100 (or any ethernet shield) support on esp32 board ? Please
Because i try to limit the wifi usage with the smarthome application, and when it’s possible i use Ethernet.
Thanks for your reply

Hi, could you point stable library that you are using with esp32 for this shield ?

hi, you are right. it’s not existing esp32 libraries for the famous ethernet shield w5100 … .

Sorry, i will buy a hm-10 for Ethernet compatibility.

I also try to reduce WiFi to a minimum for automation. I’m just wondering, why there is no hardware developed yet with the ESP32 and the Ethernet interface? There are so many development boards out there using the LAN8710A chip. Then you can use the gateway over Ethernet connection and also have good antenna for BLE!
