It's since this morning that I can't make my en0 ethernet port work. Please note: changed dozens of cables, hubs, etc. The port simply doesn't detect the cable is plugged in and the actual network interface configuration crashes with the following log upon system boot-up:

    is the ethernet connection still available in the System Prefs > Network?

    try removing & then add it back in. if you are unable to or still have the crash, then it sounds like the ethernet chipset died or some connection to it.

    I'd give apple a call on that one or visit a local apple auth. service shop.

    I had a similar issue with a MacBook Pro. When connecting the network cable, the network preferences would show 'not connected'. I thought it was hardware, but when I transferred the user to another Mac, I found that that ethernet device all the sudden stopped working as well.

    I was able to get the ethernet back with:

    System Preferences
    ->Network
    ->Assist Me...
    ->Diagnostics...

    At some point the ethernet device went green and all was well.

    Maybe this will help.
