Setup ip mac addressing
Here is the procedure for changing your board Ethernet MAC address.
u-boot has a parameter containing the Ethernet address. This parameter is independent from the hardware address. The parameter is ethaddrand eth1addr.
Cyone> printenv ethaddr 00:1E:AC:XX:XX:XX
XX:XX:XX being the board specific address.
Change MAC address
It can happen that the MAC address is wrong (e.g.: 04:A7:00:XX:XX:XX in my case), empty or that you want to change it.
Empty MAC address
If the board MAC address is empty, the procedure is simplified.
In U-boot, simply set the correct value in the parameter ethaddr, eth1addr, save the environment.
Cyone> setenv ethaddr 04:A7:00:XX:XX:XX Cyone> setenv eth1addr 04:A7:00:XX:XX:XX Cyone> saveenv
