Bug Description

To reproduce on a fresh install of wily instalal lubuntu desktop amd 64. Then install and run system profiler and benchmark from system tools and click on interfaces it shows unkown for both interfaces on my network type when I have an onbaord and pci network inteface. ifconfig shows the the interfaces as ethernet on the command line. The ouput of ifconfig on the command line is.

The interfaces tab under network shows this as unkown interface type I expected it to show as etherenet like in ifconfig. INstead it shouwed my there connectoins as unkwon. nmcli c for connections lists these connections as ethernet so I am this seems like hardinfo is not solving them.

I can still reproduce this if my ethernet nic is not named the way it was in 15.04 and earlier with say eth 0, eth1 and instead ens3 or enp0s25 So this can be a likely suspect of being mistakenly marked fix released.
