Topic EthernetProblemsOnTQM8xxL not in WebOrder Ethernet Problems on TQM8xxL boards

Question:
I am using a TQM8xxL module on a STK8xxL Starter Kit board. Everything is fine, but Ethernet does not work - neither in PPCBoot nor in Linux.

Answer:
The TQM855L/M, TQM860L/M and TQM862L/M modules use SCC1 for the Ethernet interface. Make sure that jumpers are set on connectors labeled X.12, X.13 and X.14 on the STK8xxL board on the positions 1-3 and 2-4; also make sure to remove the jumpers from positions 7-8, 9-10 and 11-12 on X.30.

For the TQM823L and TQM850L modules SCC2 is used for Ethernet. Here jumpers must be set on connectors X.12, X.13 and X.14 on the positions 3-5 and 4-6; X.30 is used for USB configuration on these boards - if you don't use USB it's safe to remove the jumpers from positions 7-8, 9-10 and 11-12 on X.30.
