If you have Intel cards with broken EEPROM / e100 driver you need to try this fix

open terminal (gnome alt+f2) and type the following command

sudo bash -c ‘echo "options e100 eeprom_bad_csum_allow=1" >> /etc/modprobe.d/options'


echo "options e100 eeprom_bad_csum_allow=1" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/options

should work though.ethernet cards are loaded from initrd so you need to update that to get it on boot time

sudo update-initramfs -u

Now you need to reboot your system
