Different person, same problem. ifconfig -a shows eth0 is there and has an IP address. But /dev shows no eth0. When I try to add it with the standard GUI, every tab is totally locked after I click Add. Nothing shows, nothing works. It's like it is there but the connection from the environment to the hardware is not happening.

i have just purchased a recommended by LINKSPRITE to attach a wifi dongle RT3750 or some shit it was 5 bucks shipped from china. its in their documentation see if it matches up with your adapter the software we use on these boards is junk and only certain things work. we will see if this adapter works or not i havent even bothered trying yet

ok i can now show you how to get wifi working.
1.first you will need this
basically it is a wifi usb with Chipset Ralink: RT5370
2. then follow these steps
everyhing i tried before failed but this works.
as for the ethernet not working make sure it is setup properly for your network speed? 1gbits, 100mbits auto etc. mine gave problems there.

This is what I did on mine to get it working; note that in my case I'm assigning a static IP address and disabling network manager:
Edit /etc/resolv.conf, contents should be:
Add this to the end of /etc/network/interfaces:
#The Primary Network Interface
iface eth0 inet static
create /etc/init/network-manager.override with the contents of:

Smily! you came to through for me twice today Those settings were perfect to get my ethernet adapter up and running for an SSH and VNC connection.
Do you perhaps know how i could share my Windows PC's internet connection with the board also? Internet comes to the PC through wifi, Ive tried a bridged connection and letting the board grab the settings automatically, ssh and all that worked but no internet, I also tried the sharing option on the wifi adapter by sharing the internet connection with my ethernet adapter but again no Internet, Not sure if its related to disabling the network manager?
Any pointers you have here would be majorly appreciated

Glad to help out!
Unfortunately, I'm not going to be much help with the Windows connection-sharing side; I just use Linux at home.
Since you can SSH to the board from the windows PC, but not connect to the internet from it, my gut-guess would be something up with the default gateway assigned to the board.
Some things you could test would be something along the lines of "traceroute yahoo.com" which should look something like --
root@whiteboard:~# traceroute yahoo.com traceroute to yahoo.com (126.96.36.199), 30 hops max, 60 byte packets 1 router.domain.com (192.168.1.1) 1.083 ms 1.181 ms 1.245 ms 2 10.10.10.1 (10.10.10.1) 3.415 ms 3.611 ms 4.664 ms 3 10.47.11.1 (10.47.11.1) 12.312 ms 12.285 ms 12.223 ms 4 * * * 188.8.131.52 (184.108.40.206) 11.300 ms 11.206 ms 11.113 ms 6 220.127.116.11 (18.104.22.168) 531.941 ms 221.790 ms 223.222 ms 7 xe-8-0-1.er2.ord7.us.zip.zayo.com (22.214.171.124) 13.949 ms 25.013 ms 20.948 ms 8 ae11.er1.ord7.us.zip.zayo.com (126.96.36.199) 20.769 ms 20.680 ms 20.586 ms 9 exchange-cust1.ch1.equinix.NET (188.8.131.52) 20.566 ms 20.499 ms 20.422 ms 10 ae-8.pat2.dnx.yahoo.com (184.108.40.206) 39.900 ms 39.791 ms 39.717 ms 11 ae-8.pat1.gqb.yahoo.com (220.127.116.11) 61.111 ms ae-6.pat2.gqb.yahoo.com (18.104.22.168) 60.726 ms 60.647 ms 12 et-1-0-0.msr1.gq1.yahoo.com (22.214.171.124) 59.980 ms et-18-1-0.msr1.gq1.yahoo.com (126.96.36.199) 60.365 ms et-19-1-0.msr2.gq1.yahoo.com (188.8.131.52) 60.574 ms 13 et-1-1-0.clr2-a-gdc.gq1.yahoo.com (184.108.40.206) 59.016 ms et-19-1-0.clr2-a-gdc.gq1.yahoo.com (220.127.116.11) 59.528 ms et-1-0-0.clr1-a-gdc.gq1.yahoo.com (18.104.22.168) 59.476 ms 14 et-17-25.fab2-1-gdc.gq1.yahoo.com (22.214.171.124) 59.454 ms UNKNOWN-67-195-1-X.yahoo.com (126.96.36.199) 64.045 ms et-18-1.fab1-1-gdc.gq1.yahoo.com (188.8.131.52) 62.402 ms 15 po-9.bas1-7-prd.gq1.yahoo.com (184.108.40.206) 61.692 ms po-12.bas2-7-prd.gq1.yahoo.com (220.127.116.11) 62.334 ms po-13.bas2-7-prd.gq1.yahoo.com (18.104.22.168) 62.318 ms
(You may have to do "apt-get install traceroute" (no quotes) before you can do so however.)
Or if that doesn't work, you could try to traceroute to Google's public DNS servers (22.214.171.124 or 126.96.36.199) and see if they resolve.
If it's not making it outside of your home network, it's probably something default-gateway or firewall related.

For those who might be interested it was easier than i originally thought.
- Make sure your PC is connected to wifi and that your pcduino is connect through the PC's ethernet jack (should work also if your pc gets internet from a usb device)
- Go to your Wifi adapters properties and select sharing, Share internet with the ethernet adapter that is connected to the pcduino
- Then on the pcduino set your /etc/network/interfaces
to look like this,
auto eth0 iface eth0 inet dhcp
The pcduino will then grab the appropriate ip and gateway automatically as windows will set the adapter up for you.
Thanks again Smily for your help, it got me going in the right direction.
