Hi,

I am having difficulty getting my Pi to connect to the network. I have tried 2 different ethernet cables, 3 different power supplies, using dhcp and setting a static address for the pi, but still no luck. Is my Pi a bad board or what. When I use dhcp it will not get an IP address, when I assign a static address I cant ping the router. Any help is appreciated.
