I did:

And that works without problems. Reading the documentation again, I do however 
not understand why "up" has to be omitted for the ifconfig command.

I think it is not too bad. Maybe the documentation is not always precise. But 
actually it does what you expect from a firmware, and even a bit more. The 
only annoying thing for me is that I can not use the USB keyboard with ABLE.
