USB-Ethernet Adapter network problems

Hello,

i have bought a belkin F5D5050 USB-to-Ethernet Adapter in dmesg it
shows:

usb 1-2.4: new full speed USB device using ehci-omap and address 4
usb 1-2.4: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
pegasus 1-2.4:1.0: setup Pegasus II specific registers
pegasus 1-2.4:1.0: eth0, Belkin F5D5050 USB Ethernet,
00:00:00:00:00:00
udevd version 124 started

and i have add the following configuration to /etc/network/interfaces:

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
    address 192.168.178.97
    netmask 255.255.255.0
    network 192.168.178.0
    gateway 192.168.178.1

then i started:
/etc/init.d/networking restart

and it shows:

/etc/init.d/networking restart
Reconfiguring network interfaces... ifconfig: SIOCSIFFLAGS: Cannot
assign requested address
ifconfig: SIOCSIFFLAGS: Cannot assign requested address
route: SIOCADDRT: Network is unreachable
done.

i'am using angstrom with Angstrom/2.6.28 kernel.

Can somebody help me?

This happens with mine... Try replugging it in till it has a valid MAC
address...

Regards,

Is the kernel built with the support for this ethernet adapter? If not, do so by enabling the corresponding driver in

" make menuconfig → Device drivers → network device support → usb network adapters → "

-Velu

If he's is actually running Angstrom/2.6.28 then it's already builtin...

Thank for the help i have plugged the stick in and out now it
works!!!!
