Has anyone seen this in their ifconfig


Recommended Posts

I was following along with the most helpful setup on linux video and when I got to the part about find the nano I saw this.


Bus 001 Device 008: ID 0b95:772a ASIX Electronics Corp. AX88772A Fast Ethernet

looks good so far, lets look at the ethx port and get that ip address:


enx00c0ca8dd622 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:c0:ca:8d:d6:22
RX packets:3 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
RX bytes:138 (138.0 B) TX bytes:0 (0.0 B)
What on earth is that?
I was wondering if anyone else has ever seen that port enx00c0ca8dd622
if was able to get into the nano using ifconfig enx00c0ca8dd622 up and update the firmware and complete the setup
but shouldn't that be an eth port?
This is on Ubuntu 15.10
Like I said I have it configured but even after a firmware update and reboot it shows up as that port.

Thank you for that info, I was not aware that the "evil" systemd had placed it's fingers on that as well.

As I said the Nano works as expected this is only becomes a slight hiccup when following the super smooth setup video, ethx is not ethx

No issues just an interesting item. Required a little tinkering to get the correct network interface and manual the ip but all is good here.
