Bug Description

The systems freezes whenever I unplug the wire cable. Wireless seems to be connecting OK.
If the wire is not connected, the system is also unable to properly launch (doesn't even get Login page) or shutdown.

Here's the syslog when I unplug the cable:

Actually, to be more precise about the temporary solution, the answer to this forum question will be better: http://askubuntu.com/questions/105607/ubuntu-11-10-and-atheros-ar8131-ethernet-card

the problem still happens with atl1c version 1.0.1.1 and ubuntu, kernel 3.8.0-23 and ubuntu 13.04.

the hangs here also happens with usb when the wired network is being used.

I (think) I don't use NFS.
