Ethernet not working after swapping RPi

Sun Jun 07, 2015 2:39 pm

Hi.

When I swap my sd-card in another RPi, the ethernet is not working anymore.
I remember I found the solution in the past, but cannot dig it up again - but I belive I had to reset the hardware-address (mac) or something simmular.

... Anyone knows?
Thanks

You need to refresh the bootcode/firmware stuff on partition #1 and partition #5 with current versions from a freshly downloaded copy of NOOBS.
