1. Unfortunately, I do not have a serial connection. My understanding
was that I could plug in the thumbstix and go. A little simplified
perspective, I know, but I was trying to keep expenses down.
Unfortunately, I cannot edit the configuration and make modifications.
I'll have to go with the defaults.
2. As far as setup, yes, I have installed the linux.inf file just as
the instructions demonstrate.
3. On the bridge, there are 3 connections. The two that are bridged
(e.g., the gumstix usbnet and the LAN), and then the bridge itself. I
understand that DHCP assigns the usbnet address. Is the other
connection (e.g., LAN) the one that you gave a static IP, or was it the
bridge, or was it both of these? I'm thinking that you let DHCP also
assign the LAN address and that the bridge itself is given a static IP.
4. Once I bridge the connections, the command "ipconfig -all" should
show me all the DHCP-provided IP addresses of the connections, correct?
Thanks in advance,

Re: usbnet over XP with gumstix and thumbstix and pdf manual questions
Yes you must use DHCP the first time to login, as that is the default
configuration on the
gumstix. If you have a Serial connection you can login to that to
configure the gumstix.
(However I"ve yet to configure a static setup)
You must also setup the bridge in XP to make it work with DHCP (again
as far as I was able
to setup, YMMV).
What I did was setup the bridge with a static IP in the correct
subnet, then have my DHCP
assign the Gumstix IP. Since I only have a small range of IP"s that
DHCP hands out I know
where to check.
As for the USB fault when plugging in after boot, I do not have that
problem. Did you
setup using the Linux.INF file as documented in the Wiki? Some times I
have a problem if
I"m running certain other type of bridged network devices over USB.
Maybe you have
something similar happening?
