Using the Debian microSD, the board doesn't seems to request any DHCP address, but using Android microSD it does. Is it because Debian is using a static IP address ? if Yes, what is that address ?

By default I think the A10S Debian doesn't have the network interface configured. From memory you need to:

1. Edit the /etc/network/interface files and add the following 3 lines (for DHCP):

auto eth0
allow-hotplug eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

2. Run "/etc/init.d/networking restart" to make the changes take effect. Or poss just use "ifup eth0".

Thanks, Kevin !
It works ... I suggest that it should be enabled by default on the images, it will be easier for newbie.

I agree! Or even have the wired interface set to a known static ip.
