Beaglebone R4 : unable to bring up Eth0

I’m unable to bring up Eth0 in my beaglebone R4.
I had tried almost most of the demo images done during december 2011. And a couple ones in jan this year.

it neither gets address through dhcp nor comes up with manually configured IP address.

Is there a sure shot load that fixes this problem.

P.S : when loaded with ubunty natty it worked like a charm !!.

Any advice would be helpful.

This is the error I get : while manual updates :
[ 1461.293068] CPSW phy found : id is : 0x7c0f1
[ 1461.300012] PHY 0:01 not found


To add …

have had the resistor popped up a while back !

Not sure what an R4 is , but did you check for the reset button issue or just do the R219 mod?


Sorry! I just reread you post. ETH0 is being found fine. There is nothing connected to ETH1 so it is impossible find anything there.
