Thanks for the part number of the Ethernet jack, Ray. That will help anyone else attempting to do this same thing. For me, I already cut the traces on the PCB, so I will just stick with the Pulse Ethernet jack. I ordered this jack based on the Version 1.1 BOM. At the time I ordered, I had no clue that the Version 1.1 PCB I had was different than the Version 1.1 BOM.
As a side note, I had too many printf statements in my code and I was not waiting long enough for DHCP to complete. It does get a IP address and I can view to web page from my local network. So it is all working with version 1.5 firmware.
