Description of problem:
The ethernet cannot maintain any sort of link - it just continually connects and disconnects.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every time. I do know it started happening to me on the 13th Sept.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect ethernet cable
2. Watch journalctl & networkmanager switch between cable unplugged and disconnected/connecting
No internet on the ethernet
Attached is a relevant portion of the journalctl log
thanks for raising this. What kernel version were you using when this was working before?

I was on 3.10.10.
One thing I noticed was that before, it would take a bit longer to connect and then say "Connected to Auto Ethernet", but now while the connecting icon is there, it suddenly changes to cable unplugged for a bit then says connected.

I just got the update yesterday - seems to solve things for now. I'll reopen the bug if I still experience things.
