It is an oddball nic - same problem in Lucid, upup Raring, & Wheezy.

Dell shipped some with Intel and some with Broadcom - as usual Broadcom makes a nuisance of itself.

I'm planning to use a USB nic as i don't have time to work around ignorant hardware manufacturers.

Good luck to them as Steam brings a bazillion high-end game users over to Linux & they learn who is Linux-friendly and who is not -- they are not at all shy about blackballing those who refuse to cooperate.
