I have just started a new design based on a Colibri VF50 using an Iris carrier board for the initial prototyping.
I have a 3rd party 7" resistive touch screen up and running, USB Keyboard, Mouse, Storage is good, but I cannot get a link on the ethernet port of the Iris board (LEDs on both the Iris and the switch are off).
After boot of the CE6 OS the ‘No-Link’ icon next the clock is shown and after approximately 1 minut, the link icon changes to ‘Link-Up’ - This happens whether the network cable is connected or not.
It appears that the change on the status icon happens when the DHCP process times out and assigns an internal IP address (169.254.x.x).
I have tested with multiple VF50 modules in 2 different Iris carrier board with 2 different ethernet switches using multiple network cables (that does work with other equipment).
Have I missed a configuration in the CE6 OS or is something else wrong ?
