I could not get HDMI output until I forced hdmi with
I have used 3 different USB connectors, each providing 1A. When probed with my multimeter at TP1 and TP2, I get around 4.80 - 4.87V with each.
I have been unable to get the network to come up at all.
USB is working.
I have tried to get networking started with ifup eth0 both at the command line and within Xwindows.
I never see any of the LEDs for the NIC light at all, even when doing an ifup eth0 and the NIC should be activated, listening for my DHCP server.
I have plugged my USB keyboard/mouse into a powered USB hub with no luck.
The only other posts that I have seen about lack of networking was from folks with bad power. I feel like my power should be sufficient, if not acceptable. At this point, I am unable to identify if this is a board issue, or PEBCAK / OSI Layer 8.
What tests can you suggest?
