    Question Updates killed ethernet card?

    Brand new pc, running Hardy 8.04, dual core etc.

    System was working normally this am.
    System updates advised: all updates added.

    Following required restart, the internet connection was lost.

    Network manager no longer recognises the network device (ethernet-connected ASDL modem).

    Cannot use manual configuration to connect

    Tried
    Code:
    sudo pppoeconf
    Declares NO INTERFACE FOUND, Sorry, no working internet card could be found...

    Offers to run modconf to load driver manually

    returns:
    Code:
    /usr/sbin/pppoeconf: 520: modconf: not found
    Ran Ubuntu Hardward Tests

    Realtek Ethernet Controller IS detected...
    But then reports "No Internet connection"

    Tried
    Code:
    dhclient
    Reports:
    Code:
    No broadcast interface found - exiting
    ifconfig returns

    Code:
    lo ...(etc)
    but no eth0 or eth1

    Code:
    lshw -C network
    returns: network UNCLAIMED and no LOGICAL NAME

    Am now at my wits end.

    Can anyone point me in a right direction?

    Is this likely to be a hardware failure? (An orange light on the ethernet controller is lit)

    If all else fails, is there a reliable way to roll back the updates? And then presumably selectively update?

    Any other advice?

    (I'm a newcomer to Ubunut...though learning fast...generally the hard way!)
