just a shot in the dark, but I have all sorts of problems when I had
two ethernet cards in my computer. it seems on boot up it reversed
them every time so they were never where they were being looked for.

I removed one of the cards and after that it was finding everything
where I had put it.

not sure why this was a problem (running SUSE) but maybe you have a
similar problem
