Re: Ethernet connection weirdly not working mornings

Appologies for taking so long to follow up on this thread,
life got busy.

The e1000e module is loaded on booting:

    ~ % lsmod | grep e1000
    e1000e                113198  0

This does appear to be a module-related problem. When I find the
ethernet won't come up, I do:

    # rmmod -f e1000e
    # modprobe e1000e

And the problem goes away. It's also possible that going through many
cyles of suspend-to-ram could exacerbate the problem, but I'm not
entirely sure.

Thanks for the help,
