    My eth0 info is:

    Code:
    driver: e100
    version: 3.5.23-k4-NAPI
    firmware-version: N/A
    bus-info: 0000:08:08.0
    Am I affected or does the "driver" field actually spell "e1000e" on those cards?
    The affected NICs use the "e1000e" driver. NOTE: Onboard Intel CSA uses the "e1000" driver and is NOT affected by this bug. (This also means that VirtualBox 2.x, with the optional Intel gigabit Ethernet configuration, is not affected.) I have the ASUS P4C800E-Deluxe with onboard Intel CSA gigE (e1000 driver), and have no problems.

    Hi

    I have marked the following thread as solved:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=931507

    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.

    Well apparently it can also set the MAC addy of the card to all FF's which might upset routers and switches somewhat

    I'm not a tester and don't understand how my 8.04 got updated to Intrepid but after another update my wired networking has stopped. If I lspci I can see
    03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82573V Gigabit Ethernet Controller (Copper) (rev 03)

    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.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-2.6.26-1-rt linux-image-2.6.26-1-rt
    
    boot into 2.6.26
    
    if you run nvidia you may also have to reinstall nvidia-glx-177.68

    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.
