to reset your MAC address after flashing the firmware using the uboot prompt..

Setenv eth1addr xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
Setenv eth2addr xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
Saveenv

you did write down the addresses?

Don't forget at uboot prompt type "help" and get all the commands

No, the newer batches of boards dont have the mac addresses printed on there..so what u need is:

Boot the system with an Old U-Boot version. This version will probe the HW macs.Write them down. Insert the newer U-Boot SD and program them as mentioned above.

I have also found out the hard way, see my ticket below... ps the links dont work anymore..

The comments for your ticket are as follows:

Hi,

Sorry for delay,

Ok, you need Win32 Disk Imager. Please download that on your PC.
One downloaded, run and insert your SD card. Download and unzip this file;

http://technical.leamancomputing.com/Te ... s_5020.zip <---------OLD FIRMWARE
http://technical.leamancomputing.com/Te ... 7-4-17.zip <---------CURRENT FIRMWARE

Extract and point Win32 Disk Imager to the bin file. Then click "WRITE". Make sure you have the correct drive selected before pressing "WRITE".

Once its written, place in motherboard. Boot, go to Startup Menu and select system info. It will display MAC addresses (stored internally in chips). Note them down. Power down and insert old SD card.
Boot back up and go into Startup Menu and select "Command Line". Now type; set ethaddr "YOUR NOTED MAC ADDRESS" press return to temp store command, then do same for ethaddr1. Once done. Type saveenv and then press enter. It should now permanantly store the values.

You can check by typing printenv and then press Retur n. It should have MAC addresses stored.
