I have the same problem n a Zepto Znote 6615WD (the same laptop as Kaare Baastrup).

It occured today for the first time, but I don't use the ethernet connection very often... However I think I remember that at least once in the previous weeks I just put the cable and NetworkManager allowed me to switch on LAN immediately, but I'm not sure. I also know that I could use the wire connection from a tty, but I don't remember if I plugged the cable before or after (re)booting the laptop...

I I have time I will try with the live CD I received today ( :-P ) or the Herd 4 CD from which I installed Ubuntu Fesity (I have never tried any other OS on this new laptop, even no previous Ubuntu versions...)
