@balbes150 OK,Thanks!!!

Hi @Frank
You can check the operation of the wired network with the latest images of the LE on the model with a311d ? One of the users has a problem with the wired network, I need to understand what the problem is (in hardware or software).

Hi @balbes150 OK, I will check it after a moment.

@balbes150 , I am so sorry. Can you give me a link? I don’t found the S922/A311D version?

Any image for S922 should work on a311d

@balbes150 ,The last image is 19/07/03? BecaseI don’t found it in 19/07/05.

To select the desired DTB , you need to edit the file (uEnv.ini)

The exact version doesn’t matter, you can take any option. It is important to check the wired network.

By the way, it is desirable to change the name of the theme and specify that this is the launch of LE. Installing LE on an eMMC is an optional feature. :wink:

Hi @balbes150, I check it just now . I can get the correct IP address, and then I try to Ping the IP of a public network, and the result is successful. Then I used it to play the video on the server, no problem to play it. So I don’t think wireless networks have any problem.

What image do you use ? Which dtb is enabled ? What version of VIM3 ? What firmware is in eMMC ?

@balbes150 ,07/03 version. the DTB file is meson-g12b-khadas-vim3.dtb. VIM3 basic . Ubuntu in eMMC.

Images on the site, you can try. :slight_smile:
