What are you using for a network adaptor?  I've never been able
to get the nve driver to work with the nForce4 MCP9 (?) on board
my Gigabyte K8N9(?) motherboard.  I had been happily getting by
with a spare intel 21143 (dc) PCI card until I upgraded to
6.1-STABLE this morning (after about a month away on holidays).
Now I can't get either to work, even though ifconfig seems to be
doing all of the right things.

All of the other on-board things work fine: SATA, FW, memory
