usb networking problem

I am using the latest Angstrom image on my beagleboard, (http://
) with the 2.6.29-r37 uImage and modules.

I have tried using both 'g_cdc' and 'g_ether' on the beagleboard, but
whenever I do 'ifup usb0' I get the message " ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP):
usb0: link is not ready". I loaded 'cdc_ether' and 'usbnet' on the
ubuntu host and still because of this error, usb0 does not show up on
the ubuntu host.

My /etc/network/interfaces file is as shown below :


# Ethernet/RNDIS gadget (g_ether)
# ... or on host side, usbnet and random hwaddr
auto usb0
iface usb0 inet static
        pre-up modprobe g_ether
        post-down rmmod g_ether


Please help.

Thanking you,
