Were you running a 2.6.27 pre-release kernel? Everyone should read
this as there about 12 NICs that could be rendered useless especially
in a chipset integrated NIC.
"If you have an Intel PCI Express add-on card or integrated NIC, avoid
the Ubuntu 8.10 alphas, OpenSUSE 11.1 beta, SUSE Linux Enterprise 11
beta, Fedora Rawhide or for that matter, any distribution that comes
with a 2.6.27 pre-release kernel." So says the following arstechnica
i am no firmware expert, but i would think if you can find an
identical machine, you should be able to use the following command
from the article to backup good firmware, then use ethtool -E to
restore the good firmware over your bad firmware.
sudo ethtool -e ethX > savemyeep.txt
