When I boot my computer my onboard LAN isn't recognized by ubuntu or windows. I have found a way to make it work though. If I insert a PCI NIC into my mobo on my next boot my onboard LAN will be recognized and work fine. On my next reboot it's no longer recognized. If I remove my PCI NIC it will recognize on the next reboot. Then the same problem happens and I get stuck into a cycle of installing and removing my NIC card between boots. Oh, and the PCI NIC is never recognized. Anyone out there wanna take a stab at why this may be or offer a solution?

mobo: PCChips P23G, PCI NIC: linksys, unknown model.

new development: so i shut down my pc then unplugged it from the wall. when i booted it i didn't lose its onboard lan like usual. so it looks like swapping the pci card wasn't the fix for it. the fix was pulling it from power completely. any ideas after this developement?
