I am attempting to use the new USRP2 units connected to a Ubuntu (Hardy
8.04) PC via GigE.
I have followed the installation instructions here
(http://gnuradio.org/trac/wiki/UbuntuInstall) to install all the
required software, and installed GNU Radio. However, when I then run
“find_usrps” as directed in http://gnuradio.org/trac/wiki/USRP2UserFAQ,
I repeatedly get a “No USRP2 found” message.
I have swapped out the ethernet cables as well as tried out both the
USRP2 units I have, but the behavior is consistent. The green light
inside the USRP2 box on the ethernet interface is glowing (but not
flashing), but the lights on the USRP2 ethernet interface outside the
box are not up at all.
I have looked at the find code, and it seems to look for a broadcast
reply from the USRP2 ethernet interface. Is there some code I need to
install on the FPGA for the ethernet interface to respond, or is there
some other stuff I need to do to get this to work?
Any replies and suggestions will be much appreciated!
