So they've never worked and there is no regression at all.
This is always the problem with new hardware - someone needs to write

Unless someone with time and hardwarespecs come up there is no chance.
Use another NIC as temporary workaround.

Probably because noone has informations?
-network list would be an option to get in touch with network people.
