   Netmask [255.255.255.0]:
   Default gateway [10.0.1.1]:

 Initializing interface eth0.  This may take a minute...........

Please verify the controller you are working on is the active controller and of course that you have a link light. From what I remember the EQL forces you to have a link to config the port.
