it's actually an RJ11 or RJxx phone jack. well at least the red octane version I have in front of me is. You can tell this because Ethernet has at least 8 pins usually. And phone jacks usually have a max of 4 pins. Now as to what it actually does I have no idea. Looking into that now. glad to have found this thread thanks.

Okay Let me answer thi for you the plugin is its for an ethernet/phone cable so you plug it into the guitar and into the side of you pc or laptop then it makes it compatible with the pc version of the game instead of playing with the keyboard also if you own guitar hero 3 xbox 360 disc then you can put it in your computer and it allows you to play it on your computer

If that's the case, then which type of ethernet cable do you use? All the cables I have don't fit into the controller.

It isn't and Ethernet port, its a Phone Jack... and honestly i think the whole pedal thing would be cool but i don't think it would be extremely successful.

Was originally for an expansion pedal. no-one ever designed one though, and I'm pretty sure it has been dropped from recent models.
