Net Object


The net object represents the Ethernet interface of your device. This object only specifies various parameters related to the Ethernet interface and is not responsible for sending/transmitting network data. The latter is the job of the sock object.

Here is what you can do with the net object:

  • Check if the Network Interface Controller (NIC) IC is functioning properly.
  • Check your device's Ethernet MAC address.
  • Set the IP-address of the Ethernet Interface.
  • Set default gateway IP and the netmask.
  • Be notified when the Ethernet cable is plugged or unplugged and check current link status.
  • Be notified when data overflow occurs in the NIC.
