Using LAN8720 modules as Ethernet interface for custom LPC1768 mbed boards
Although the original LPC1768 mbed board is featuring a DP83848 chip, because there are available low cost (about $2.50) LAN8720 modules from various sellers I decided to give it a try. For more details about LAN8720 see the datasheet.

Unfortunately the RX_ER pin was not available at the module's connector. So I took a thin wire, soldering iron and connected it to the NC (Not Connected) pin.
