RNDIS doesn't work with console images for BBB

When I program my BBB with lxde based Debian images from http://elinux.org/Beagleboard:BeagleBoneBlack_Debian#2015-03-01
the RNDIS driver seems to function correctly and I can ping and ssh into my BBB through USB. However when I program the console
only images, the RNDIS connection doesn’t work correctly. I am using a Windows 7 PC, and I can see the new network connection get created
when I plug in the BBB, but it says Network Cable Unplugged. This behavior is the same whether I use the Flasher images or the SD Card images,
current release (2015-03-01) or snapshots. Is there something different about the console images that prevents the RNDIS from working correctly?
Is there a way that I can get the same behavior with the smaller console images?

#First install udhcpd & git-core

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install udhcpd git-core

#Look at all that wasted space :wink:

#Second update the boot scripts:

cd /opt/scripts/
git pull
