I am attempting to use the ethernet port in Android. I enabled the ethernet option from the network settings, but I’ve been unable to finish the IP address setup from settings because the Gateway settings page doesn’t bring up a keyboard/advance. After enabling the ethernet option, I’ve restarted many times, but it still says ‘Active: M2X (Reboot for changes to take effect)’.
I’ve set the static IP address using ip/ifconfig commands and those settings take, but it will never show a status of ‘UP’ in ‘ip link show’, though the port is set to be up.
I need to get this ethernet port working asap, so I’m hoping someone has some tips that can get me going. Thanks!
