 From my previous post to this bug:

/etc/network/interfaces has been created by the installer. If I add an 
"up"-rule to the interface (to enable Wake-on-LAN), NetworkManager will 
show no configured devices (at least via the dbus interface used by 
Sugar). If I comment out that rule again, NetworkManager will report 
eth0 as online.

=== Begin /etc/network/interfaces ===
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
allow-hotplug eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp
#       up      ethtool -s $IFACE wol g

=== End /etc/network/interfaces ===
