Turn off the modem for 10-15 minutes when disconnecting the ethernet cable from the laptop and connecting it to the desktop (or vice-versa).

Tried ;powering off the modem when switching, no change in behaviour.
Tried
#dhcpcd eth0 got
#err, eth0:ioctl SIOCGIFHWADDR: No such device
then did
#dmesg | grep -i eth and get
driver 'st' needs updating - please use bus_type methods
driver 'sd' needs updating - please use bus_type methods
driver 'sr' needs updating - please use bus_type methods

Then did
#tail -f /var/log/messages
and got six messages about [fglrx] and then:
Jul 26 08:44:38 host dbus-daemon: Rejected send message, 1 matched rules; type="method_c all", sender=":1.10" (uid=1000 pid-3747 comm="xfce4-power-manager ") interface=org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.SystemPowerManagement" member="JustToCheck" error name ="(unset)" requested_reply=0 destination="org.freedesktop.Hal" (uid=0 pid=3491 comm="/usr/sbin/hald --daemon=yes "))
Jul 26 08:45:32 host dhcpcd[3758]: eth0: dhcpcd 3.2.3 starting
Jul 26 08:45:32 host dhcpcd[3758]: eth0: exiting

I hope someone can make sense of this.

The most helpful thing you could post is the lspci & lsmod output from the desktop PC, it really sounds like a hardware driver issue but without that output we can't tell.

If you have a flash drive or floppy you could pipe the output to a file and copy it that way you wouldn't have to type it.

It definitely seems like the Network card is not being detected at all.

lspci would be a huge help for us to assist you.

Unhappy

We don't see any ethernet controller in lspci's output thus the network card is not detected at all.

If it were it would show in output of "ifconfig -a" as "eth<number>". I guess that this is not the case.

EDIT I wrongly wrote "lspci -a" at first, thanks to mRgOBLIN for noticing - I only hope I am not affected by senile dementia already

ifconfig -a

Okay, first off you do have a problem here, but it's going to take some extra steps.

Your network card isn't even detected by lspci which is NOT promising, but it does shed some light into the matter. Now we need to dig more into the schematics of the PC you have the problems with. So lets start from scratch here. The following questions are going to be a bit direct but unless they are answered we won't get anywhere.

1. Did your PC ever come with another OS like Windows, and if so, did you ever have any problems with the Network Card on it?

2. Go into your BIOS/CMOS and check and see if the Ethernet Adapter/Port is enabled. If it's disabled, enable it. Never hurts to check this out.

3. What is the model and make of your PC and how old is it?

Once we have this information we can find out what the problem is and look into resolving it.

1 - No

2- There is no such thing as Ethernet Adapter/Port in BIOS.
there is, however something called "onboard LAN function" which was disabled.
So I enabled it, rebooted, and saw on gkrellm that eth0 is up!


Much thanks to ReaperX7, and all who helped in the process.
