EDK10.1 and emaclite

Hi again,

mmh, there is no kernel message with PHY detection, but all PHY drivers 
are compiled in.
i looked at my xps project and there is only one ip-core "Ethernet_MAC" 
with type "xps_ethernetlite".
is it possible that the phy connection is missing ? i use the base 
system builder with the board support files supported from avnet.

where can i look for the ethernet speed ? the ethernetlite ip has no 
speed options

thanks for your help
