It looks like the best thing to try to get by for now would be to throw in a PCI NIC and
disable the onboard.  I think I saw someone else did that and all was well.  If you
don't have one I'd try an Intel Pro1000, I've had excellent luck with them.  If that
works, then you'll have time to submit something as a bug and wait.

Hope that helps
