Public bug reported:

My network card is an Intel Corporation PRO/100 VE:

07:08.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation PRO/100 VE Network Connection (rev 02)
        Subsystem: Fujitsu Siemens Computer GmbH Unknown device 10ad
        Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 20
        Memory at dc000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4K]
        I/O ports at 5000 [size=64]
        Capabilities: <access denied>

Sometimes when I boot Ubuntu on my laptop, with the network cable
plugged in, I have no Internet connection even though Network manager
says it's connected. All I have to do is unplug and plug the ethernet
cable a few times (even 10 times) before I can get proper connection.

doing a sudo ifconfig eth0 down and then sudo ifconfig eth0 up doesn't
solve the problem. Disabling ipv6 doesn't change anything.

NOTE: I connect to the Internet through a router (with DHCP) and I have
no problem with my other computers of the same network.

Please let me know if you need further details.
