Hello Everyone,

I was unable to connect to wifi and ethernet using my Overo Fire and
Tobi board, I followed the directions from this post


The wifi appears to be working but, I am unable to connect to the
ethernet still. The above post suggests adding smsc911x to the end of
the /etc/modules file ( modifying the stock image to make sure the
ethernet kernel is loaded) but I was unable to find this file in the
stock image. If anyone could offer help I would greatly appreciate it.

root@overo:~# echo smsc911x >> /etc/modules

root@overo:~# cat /etc/modules

You'll have to also edit /etc/network/interfaces to set up your networking preferences for eth0.  The easiest thing to do is just uncomment the line "auto et0"
