hello list,

i purchased a neo freerunner and flashed it successfully with


my problem is that the eth0 device (interface) is not present on the system:

# ls /sys/class/net/
/sys/class/net/lo/    /sys/class/net/usb0/

therefore i am unable bring up the eth0 interface i.e:

# /sbin/ifconfig eth0 up
ifconfig: SIOCGIFFLAGS: No such device

on my friends device with the same system and kernel the eth0 interface 
is brought up and we can see it in /sys/class/net/eth0/ and also it can 
be brought up with the ifconfig command.

any help would be appreciated
