Question Problem with Linux reboot and connection via Ethernet port.

Dear all,
I have a problem with Linux reboot.
after a reboot command from CLI-APP, I have a problem with connection via Ethernet port, can't ping.
the problem persist until i perform a hardware reset (push button).
the problem probably caused by the ethernet controller witch is not reseted but if i reset the ethernet controller without reboot command,(WriteReg command) it works and the connection is automatically established.

Thanks for help.

You need to run some commands to find out what is going on. When it fails, open a terminal and run the commands

'ifconfig eth0' for the current condition of the interface eth0. It could just be not active.

'netstat -r' will dump the kernel routing table. Have you got a default route set when it fails?

Post the results if unsure. All commands without the quotes.
