Hello, everyone. I am new to ROS.

I have a velodyne VLP 16, and I want to send its data to the ground computer wirelessly. Therefore, I try to do it in this way: Velodyne VLP 16 ---ethernet--->microcomputer---wifi---->ground computer

Since velodyne only has an ethernet port rather than other ports supporting USB, the only way to connect microcomputer and velodyne is through the ethernet.

However, I found that the microcomputer can never use ethernet receiving data and use wifi sending data at the same time. Once it connects to wifi or ethernet, it loses connection from the other.

So how to solve this problem?

Without knowing what sort of minicomputer you have, what OS it runs, or how your networks are set up, it's very difficult to answer this.

It's also not clear that this is actually a ROS question; it just sounds like you're having trouble with networking.
