There are several option but most are probably not completely finished/ready for what you want. If I understand it well (not reading into datasheets) you need to send ethernet data over your modems?

On the ground/GCS side that should be easy and you can for instance use ivy2udp to send/receive serial data via udp instead or point udp-link to any other device than a serial port (might need to remove the set-baurdrate part).

In the plane though, there is only ethernet if you add e.g. a linux board like we have for instance on Lisa-L + gumstix. With other autopilots you will need a separate board, e.g. serial to ethernet or gumstix but that can certainly be done.

Dear everyone,

We are trying to use an alternative method for the communications with the Paparazzi to increase range. Instead of using the Xbee modems we would like to use an Ethernet modem with a combination of Ubiquiti radios. The problem we are having consists on that we cannot get the Paparazzi communicate with the Ground Station.

Does anyone knows how to change the COM ports that the Ground Station uses to communicate with the on board Paparazzi? Is it possible to send telemetry only through USB or Ethernet?
