quick check, at any point with 5 - 30 seconds after you've plugged the cable in,
what does /sys/class/net/<your network device>/carrier say?  If it says "0" the
it's a kernel problem since that means the kernel doesn't know its connected. 
If it says "1", then its a NetworkManager problem.
Comment 2 Matthew Saltzman 2005-10-22 23:32:50 EDT
Well the first time I looked, it said "invalid configuration" or something to
that effect.  I rebooted with the wire plugged in just to see what happened and
it worked.  /sys/class/net/<my wired device> switches between 0 and 1.

Now it works regardless of whether I boot with the wire in or not.

So it's working for now, and I can no longer reproduce the problem.  If things
change, I'll open a new bug.
