Did anything change with 2.17.3 that would impact the Ethernet over USB connection? After I upgraded, the device no longer shows up in my Device Manager on Windows. I managed to login over WiFi and ensured that rndis was set by running:
fw_setenv bootargs_ethconfig rndis
and rebooted, but that didn’t fix the problem.
Here is the output from modprobe -c | grep multi
root@ReachGCS:~# modprobe -c | grep multi

and ifconfig usb0:

Merrifield device shows up briefly in the device manager, but the RNDIS device never shows up under Network Adapters like it used to. I reinstalled the Intel Edison Ethernet over USB driver, but that didn’t affect the problem.
According to this article https://forums.intel.com/s/question/0D50P0000490QYrSAM/windows-7-and-10-rndis-adapter-just-doesnt-work?language=en_US
I should see lines like:
[ 5.145231] g_multi gadget: g_multi ready
[ 6.337976] g_multi gadget: high-speed config # 1: Multifunction with RNDIS
Is it possible that RNDIS support wasn’t provided or is broken in this release?
Any news @andrew.yushkevich ?
