Does anyone know a motherboard for an ARM-compatible CPU, with Gigabit Ethernet? I took a look at Beagleboard (which is actually more than just a motherboard) and some others, but I could only find 10/100 MBit Ethernet.

So motherboard questions are not hardware related. How interesting... –  Alexis Dufrenoy Sep 30 '11 at 10:05
    
Probably closed because it sounds too much like a shopping recommendation. –  ultrasawblade Apr 2 '12 at 12:17

It would be if ARM motherboard were so widespread that I just had to choose one. Actually, it's tricky to just find one... –  Alexis Dufrenoy Apr 2 '12 at 13:17

I have the TS-7800, which does have gigabit ethernet: http://www.embeddedarm.com/products/board-detail.php?product=ts-7800

However, they forked the Linux kernel for this board. The vanilla kernel works, but with some limitations, see http://www.digriz.org.uk/ts78xx/kernel

An alternative option would be to mod a NAS enclosure such as synology or lacie. I believe there are modding/hacking forums out there for these. Both companies ship arm based gigabit ethernet systems.

Or consider arduino, there is now a 96Mhz (Megahertz, enough for many apps) board. There may be an addon for this. O'Reilly books have some good guides on arduino and embedded systems as well.

Actually, the purpose is a parallel-computing experiment, so I would like to link several boards, each with some computing power. An Arduino will not do the job. –  Alexis Dufrenoy Sep 29 '11 at 14:54
