XPedite5501 P2020e. Active ethernet issue (u boot)

Hi,

 

When powering-on XPedite5501, u boot shows: Net: eTSEC1, eTSEC2. Indicating there are two Ethernet ports available. When I run "printenv" I see ethact = eTSEC1. I set ethact to etSEC2 by "setenv ethact eTSEC2", then save ("saveenv"). If I power cycle, ethact defaults to eTSEC1. Both ethernet ports have worked. I managed to switch between them once before. Now I can't seem to prevent P2020e from defaulting to ethact = eTSEC1. My goal is to have both ethernet ports talking "simultaneously". From what I've tried, I'm only allowed to have one talking even though they are both connected to a single switch.

 

Any advice on this?

 

Thanks.
