Since your using the GUI to reactivate the ethernet card, if you go into
the configuration area and edit DEVICES. There is a checkbox, which says
"Activate device when computer starts", tick this box, and save the
configuration. Then the next time you boot the system the ethernet
device will start. (It's always worked for me)
