Network card does not work properly
I have a very strange problem with my network card. Often when I boot Linux I get this problem:
But I found the way how to make it connect: reboot to Windows, wait Windows to connect to this network, then reboot to Linux. And after this Linux easily connects to this network. Why?
My system: Debian GNU/Linux Wheezy.
uname -a: Linux franchuk-r 3.6.2-vanillamy #1 SMP Thu Nov 8 17:57:16 EET 2012 x86_64 GNU/Linux (I have the same problem with Debian's 3.2 kernel and with Liquorix kernel).
My network card: 05:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8101E/RTL8102E PCI Express Fast Ethernet controller (rev 05)

Hope this helps :)
Thanks, that helped.
