I have installed armbian on SD card and I cannot get no network. Neither ethernet, neither wireless. Only thing I managed is to connect to it via serial port. Here is some information about my network im connected to:


Network DNS always assigns addresses from 100-200

root@orangepizero:~# route -n
Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface         -        !     0      -        0 -   U     0      0        0 eth0

root@orangepizero:~# cat /etc/network/interfaces
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

iface eth0 inet dhcp

auto wlan0
 iface wlan0 inet dhcp
 wpa-ssid *****
 wpa-psk *****

I have tried assigning static addresses, and some other tips I found on the internet, and I had no success. Device is still without connection.

Here is my current ifconfig eth0 (although it has ip that I placed, it is not connected to the router)

eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr e6:f5:19:a6:1b:e6
          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:
          inet6 addr: fe80::e4f5:19ff:fea6:1be6/64 Scope:Link
          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:237 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
          RX bytes:0 (0.0 B)  TX bytes:10602 (10.3 KiB)
  • What dhcp client are you using? dhcpcd or isc-dhcp-client ? – sameera Apr 16 '19 at 3:06

Your route is wrong. It should look something like this:

 Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface   UG    600    0      0   eth0

Check your DHCP settings. The gateway and netmask settings are ignored when using the dhcp setting.

  • No success there. Here is my current route: Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface default UG 600 0 0 eth0 * UH 0 0 0 eth0 – Marko Apr 2 '17 at 16:21
  • Ok, now the default route looks ok, but you have changed the second route to a host route, which is not necessary. You should have two entries: default UG 600 0 0 eth0 U 600 0 0 eth0 – Johan Myréen Apr 2 '17 at 18:24
