Ethernet on LS1021A TWR ?

Hello,

I have a LS1021A board (rev A0) on which I'm trying to have a simple ethernet connection. I've tried several SDK (uboot+kernel+dtb), each time I flash uboot on a SD card, boot it, load the kernel/rootfs/dtb by tftp (with any ethernet port) and start it.

Once Linux has started, I can't reach anymore the network, I can set ip address for each interface but impossible to establish a connection with my computer. I have the message

libphy: mdio@2d24000:00 - Link is Down

libphy: mdio@2d24000:00 - Link is Up - 1000/Full

When I plug/unplug the ethernet cable but it's strange that if I have a ping command while unplugging it I don't get the message "Network is unreachable". When I use Wireshark on my computer, most of the time there are no packets at all going through, but sometimes I can see the ping coming, my computer acknowledge it but on the board it is not received...

I've tried several configurations but none of them works. My switch configuration is the default one :
SW2 ON [1] OFF [0] OFF [0] OFF [0] ON [1] ON [1] ON [1] ON [1]
SW3 OFF ON ON OFF OFF ON OFF ON

I don't know if there is anything linked to the RCW. Here is my uboot env :

It's highly strange and I don't know at all what could cause this behaviour...

ls1021a-twr eth0 has a bug.

Eth0 can not ping.

Try eth1.

I do not know whether this is a bug or a feature but most likely it can be fixed by the fix mentioned in my answer in the eth0 (eTSEC1) On A LS1021a-TWR Board thread.

Hi,

I have the IoT Gateway and the eth0 does not work too.
I checked RCW config, SW2.5 = OFF.
Does the bug come from the same area as the one for the Tower board?

The eth0 is multiplexed with SATA signals, which is controlled by the mux_sata_sgmii (MUX's SEL) from the sw_mux_sel0 (SW2.5). I read this from the CPLD source program. Anyone else is playing with the CPLD?

Note: eth1 is working.

I too face same issue. Eth0 is not pinging, whereas Eth1 and Eth2 seems working.

I am using SDK 2.0. Is the problem is fixed? Could you please point me the right fix.

Hi,

Thanks for your input, but I've tried every single ports without success.
