Eth0 shows up in the Network connections list, but has no MAC address. In network tools, the state of the device is listed as inactive with the interface statistics all set at 0.

I always thought linux worked best with Intel hardware which is why I use it. I tried some of the modprobe settings suggested by intel, and none of them produced working results I would mention that the original poster on UbuntuForums — who has the same card as I do — reportedly tested this both on Hardy and Intrepid and states that the problem persists.
