http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hello, I have been working with a Advantech AIMB-780W board to be used in the PC's at my company and have recently run into some problems with the on-board Ethernet ports. I am running Linux on the PC, specifically Fedora 13 (kernel is the latest update I've tested i think). Originally after installing the PC recognizes both ports and I can use the top port (82578DM) without any problems however the default MAC address comes up as 88:88:88:88:87:88. This MAC address is consistent regardless of which Linux OS I install, I have tried F (HowTos)
