I have a problem with my wired interface - an appropriate device for it is just not created at boot. What is strange about it is that it never gets enabled on boot, but is always created after a reboot. This behavior is persistent regardless of whether the carrier is present or not.
Thus the output of some commands after boot is as follows:
- commands like
ifconfig -aonly display lo and wifi interfaces.
lshw -C networkshows the following for the Ethernet adapter:

lsmod | grep e1000shows the module is loaded:

What I have tried so far:
- compiling the latest version of the driver, that is available at Intel Support site;
installing sysfsutils so my /etc/sysfs.conf looks like this:
devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:19.0/enable = 1
but neither has solved the problem.
I have been googling for quite a while now, but have not found much useful information given my problem is so weird. Any ideas will be highly appreciated. Thanks!
