If that is the problem, you should create an alias for your network 
card module in '/etc/modeprobe.d/aliases' or a file with such alias 
line into on /etc/modeprobe.d/ directory.

For example, being 'sungem' the NIC module, 'alias eth0 sungem' 
can fix it.

(don't forget 'update-modules' to activate your changes)
