tg3.bin tg3_tso.bin tg3_tso5.bin
Have you got those?
Jep, all 3 present.

Maybe the tg3 module doesn't have everything it needs? I read something about "libphy" being required for tg3. I don't have that module and haven't figured out yet how to get it.

Edit: On second thought, never mind, because then why would it work in live mode...

Aaargh, this doesn't make any sense

To check if it's missing a dependency, run
grep tg3 /lib/modules/<kernel-version>/modules.dep

You can read what it wants, and find each of them in the module tree.

It doesn't seem to have any dependencies.


Also, found an error message that may be relevant:

Code:
Loading kernel module for a network device with CAP_SYS_MODULE (deprecated). Use CAP_NET_ADMIN and alias netdev-eth0 instead
Can't make much of that though and googling hasn't helped so far.

The kernel internals are grumpy. I wouldn't worry about it, but google tells me it's to do with loading modules. So insmod or modprobe tg3 isn't enough; do lsmod |grep tg3, and try ifconfig eth0 followed by lsmod |grep tg3

Also, let's do this the proper way.
lspci
copy your Ethernet card line. Note the bus number at the beginning.
lspci -n
copy the same bus number. Then you can google that id in the form nnnn:nnnn
