'device 1691' is a BCM57788 according to http://cateee.net/lkddb/web-lkddb/TIGON3.html, and this NIC should be supported by the tg3 driver. However, no 'Kernel modules' line is visible in the lspci output.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Buy a Dell Inspiron 570 (I bought mine 3 weeks ago, http://configure.euro.dell.com/dellstore/config.aspx?oc=d005736&c=nl&l=nl&s=dhs&cs=nldhs1&kc=inspiron-570 with default settings)
2. Install F12
3. Check the interface status
Actual results:
No NIC visible

Expected results:
NIC visible

Additional info:
I'm not sure if this is a kernel problem, a firmware-addon-dell problem, or something else.

I'm having the same problem on a Dell 580s system with the same card.

By running:
insmod /lib/modules/
insmod /lib/modules/
ifconfig eth0 up
dhclient eth0

I get an IP address.  So the driver is present, at least in this updated kernel.  However, I have not yet gotten it to load on boot or display through Network Manager.
