Setting the MAC address..

Aug 15, 2008 in Embedded, Linux, Network

On an embedded board (TS7260) I was testing, it turned out
that the MAC address of the network adapter was all FFs.

As a result, I was not able to network to the board at all.

Here is how to set the MAC address:

$ ifconfig eth0 down
$ ifconfig eth0 hw ether 00:80:48:BA:d1:20
$ ifconfig eth0 up
