Ideally you may want to use PCIE for second Ethernet. You can buy an Ethernet PCIE mini card, or you can connect a PCIE Ethernet chip. Test the chip before you place it on board e.g. you can buy an Ethernet card with the chip first and use iMX6Rex Development Board to test it: http://www.imx6rex.com/2014/05/how-t...cond-ethernet/

Of course, another option is USB to Ethernet, but there may be some limitations in speed.
