Hello,

I just received the i.MX6 ultralite evk today. Booting from the included SD card, both ethernet ports are inactive.

I am running Linux kernel version: Linux imx6ulevk 4.1.15-1.1.0+ga4d2a08

Relevant boot logs:

Configuring network interfaces... fec 20b4000.ethernet eth0: Freescale FEC PHY driver [Micrel KSZ8081 or KSZ8091] (mii_bus:phy_addr=20b4000.ethernet:01, irq=-1)
IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth0: link is not ready

Starting rpcbind daemon...fec 2188000.ethernet eth1: Freescale FEC PHY driver [Micrel KSZ8081 or KSZ8091] (mii_bus:phy_addr=20b4000.ethernet:02, irq=-1)
IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth1: link is not ready

From ifconfig, both interfaces have valid MAC addresses, but no IP addresses although the interfaces are configured for DHCP:

The status LEDs on the ethernet ports are not even on. 

Any thoughts on how to fix this issue?
