Wandboard Quad FEC MAC address

Postby alxpert » Thu Jul 20, 2017 5:52 pm

Can somebody confirm that the MAC address of the onboard FEC is stored in u-boot for Ubuntu images?
I'm asking this because if i create multiple SDcard from Ubuntu images, they all get the same MAC address.

U-boot manages the MAC address that is given to Ubuntu to use.

You can change it with something like this at the u-boot prompt:
setenv ethaddr 00:1f:7b:b4:0e:01

U-boot retrieves MAC addresses from the system ROM and efuses which are in the i.MX6 chip.
The ethaddr variable is stored on the sdcard along with the rest of the u-boot environment, since Wandboards do not have on-board flash memory.

However, not all OSes use the ethaddr variable.
For some, you may have to edit the networks interfaces file:
nano /etc/network/interfaces

This is more information here:

The data transferred over the SHAREit platform secured with a binding connection
share it protocol. The app does what you can do using Bluetooth or NFC, but faster. SHAREit apk also works more quickly for data transfer between PCs, compared to USB drive transfer
