Up the ethernet interface

Hello,

I am currently using a FX30 modem with WP85xx module.
I want to use the ethernet eth0 interface, however it’s does not appear when I run ifconfig :

lo        Link encap:Local Loopback  
          inet addr:127.0.0.1  Mask:255.0.0.0
          inet6 addr: ::1/128 Scope:Host
          UP LOOPBACK RUNNING  MTU:65536  Metric:1
          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:0 
          RX bytes:0 (0.0 B)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 B)

usb0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 96:60:33:E6:3E:E0  
          inet addr:192.168.2.2  Bcast:192.168.2.255  Mask:255.255.255.0
          inet6 addr: fe80::9460:33ff:fee6:3ee0/64 Scope:Link
          UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:550 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:513 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 
          RX bytes:48885 (47.7 KiB)  TX bytes:152693 (149.1 KiB)

cat /etc/network/interfaces gives me :

# Wired or wireless interfaces
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
	address 192.168.13.31
	netmask 255.255.255.0
iface eth1 inet dhcp

Then, if I tried to run ifup I have :

root@fx30:~# ifup eth0
ifconfig: SIOCSIFHWADDR: No such device
ifconfig: SIOCSIFADDR: No such device

Do you hyave any idea how could I have the ethernet interface eth0 working ?

Thanks,

Hi,
I saved on pastebin the return of the command “dmesg” : http://pastebin.com/raw/cNH3Nb11 if it can help.

Hi,

Did anyone ever make any progress on this? You can statically assign an IP address using ifconfig amdn manually bring it up but it does not respond to pings from a host device connected to it.

I am assuming that you have to change some of the config files within /etc/ such as udhcpd.conf but cannot figure out what to change it to?

Regards

Matt
