#6917 closed defect (duplicate)

usb wired connection broken in Update.1 703

I olpc-update'd from 656 to Update1 candidate-703, and held down X to upgrade the firmware to q2d14 at the same time. After that, my Linksys USB200M USB-ethernet adaptor [Asix driver] no longer gave me a connection.

The device still shows up in ifconfig as 'eth1' when inserted, but it never gets an IP address like it should. The one exception was when it made up a pair of IPv4/v6 link-local addresses for itself.

Holding the 'O' button and booting back into the 656 image lets me use the adaptor perfectly.
