I have marked the following thread as solved:
but I think it is exhibiting the same problem mentioned in this thread.

After installing alpha6 from the repos, it "bricked" my ethernet temporarily. Logged into my dual boot Windows install, and it wasn't working. Uninstalled the driver, let it detect, and installed the driver again, a few reboots and it was working.
After I installed Alpha6 is took down the port I was plugged into on my router, had to a reset of settings. (DD-WRT Linksys)
Not sure if this might be the/a issue.
It's a theme, and this is linux, change it if you don't like it.
Well apparently it can also set the MAC addy of the card to all FF's which might upset routers and switches somewhat

uname -r gives 2.6.27-4-generic
If somebody can give an idiots guide to correcting my wired network I'd be grateful.
Windows apparently has the ability to reset the eeprom -- at least to some degree.
The lack of progress is a bit disappointing. I wonder if this will be fixed in time for release.

Thanks nanog. Will I have to manually select 2.6.26 each time or will it know to boot to it?
You can change your boot order in /boot/grub/menu.lst -- just be careful to back this file up before touching it.
