Guy Im having issues getting my NIC to work. I dont think the NIC is faulty because when I plug the network cable in I get the green and orange light and I get the below result when running lspci | grep net
:~$ lspci | grep net
02:08.0 Ethernet Controller: Intel Corporation 82801BA/BAM/CA/CAM Ethernet Controller (Rev 42)
There is only the lo entry in /etc/network/interfaces, there is no eth0 at all
I ran "sudo modprobe e100" and then restarted the NIC with sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart and I get the below result:
Running /etc/init.d/networking restart is deprecated because it may not enable a

Failed ro bring up eth0.
when I run ifconfig -a it only lsts lo and pan0
Its an on-board NIC so I thought it might be disabled in the bios, but there was no option in the bios to disable it so I thought I would update the bios to see if that does. Unfortunately it didn't. I'm at a loss now, any other ideas?
