I have had a hacked Audrey now for over a year. I originally had it connected to my broadband router using a reprogrammed Netgear EA101 USB network adapter. After I got errors that the Audrey could not get an IP address I replaced the Netgear With a boxed 3Com 3C19250 USB adapter which is the 3Com recommended adapter. I still am unable to get an IP address. The adapter shows lights for the link and a flashing activity but I am unable to connect. If I do a cat /proc/ipstats It shows the interface lo0 with the loopback of 127.0.0.1 ( which is pingable) and en0 with no address. ls -/dev shows usbenet0. Does anyone know of anyway I can troubleshoot using console or any other tools as to why the OS can see the interface but it cannot bind an IP to it. I have even tried to configure an Ip address to it manually but it still does not see the network. I have the MrAudrey 03-2.cf image loaded using the cf card and this is the 3rd image I have tried. Is it dead?
Most of the Physical options I have tried. A different USB port. A different port on the hub. New cable. New network adapter. I guess what I am wondering is if the link and activity lights are working on the adapter and yet the Audrey is still unable to get an IP from the DHCP server, is the Audrey dead? Everything seems to work just fine on it otherwise. It flashes new images no problem. Is this something that the Audrey is known for? I have it taken apart now and I am looking for a bad solder or possible disconnected wire but there is nothing obvious internally.
Thank you. I did as you said and had no bootp packets running on the network so I took the Audrey apart. I'm not sure what happened but now it is working. A mystery forever but it's working so I will leave it at that.
