I've been hepply using the ethernet driver for for Coldfire boards. Then "something" happened and now I can't use any networked enabled appilcation(telnet, nfs, ftp, ping...) because they can't connect. Yesterday after uclinux booted, I've typed the ifconfig eth0 <ip> command and then I've tried to ping the board. The ping didn't work at first but after some time it worked and I was able mount the nfs server. Then I've added the ifconfig command to /etc/rc and rebooted the board, the ethernet interface worked. But today,  when I ping the board from another machine, ping says XXX trasfer XXX lost %100 loss. I'm not able to mount the nfs server.
Here is the output of the ifconfig command
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 6B:16:CA:B2:C0:24
          inet addr:  Bcast: Mask:
          RX packets:557412 errors:1 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:1
          TX packets:117 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:100
          Base address:0x840
The rx packets count increases evertime I give the ifconfig command.
What may be the problem here?
