No network connection after boot (red light on green light on blue blinking), not showing connected to hub. Networking is working fine with ported rasabian bullseye image.

Further investigation reveals, it was on the network BUT

  1. Piimager (v1.73) advanced options dont get applied via firstrun.sh, so setting ssh user and other settings doesn’t work
  2. fix ssh by creating a single file ssh (no extension) in /boot
  3. fix user by creating a userconf.txt file in /boot

Check the cable. If you are connected to a device without Auto-MDIX (usually another 100Mb Fast Ethernet), you need to use either a patch cable or a cross over cable depending on that device’s setup.
