Temac_ethernet issues on The Virtex 5 FXT PCI Express ® Gen 2 Development Board • FX100T

Hi,

i have created a project on EDK 13.2  to boot linux on the hightech global virtex 5 FX100T and everything worked fine. My problem is to get the ethernet receiving and transmitting data on the booted linux. I connected the board to a network adapter with an ethernet cable, after configuration with my bitstream, but the Ethernet status LEDs both on the FPGA board and on the network adapter connected at the other end were off.  I'm using the GMII version of the core, and my powerpc processor runs at 400MHz, i don't know where the problem might be comming from

Does anyone please know what i might be doing wrong?, i need it so i can cross compile some programs for PowerPC and transmit to the board through SCP for execution.

Thanks

A common issue I've seen on the the Xilinx ML boards is not connecting/driving the PHY reset or reversing the polarity.  Not certain on the connection for this board, but worth check.
