After rebooting from Windows XP to Gentoo Linux the NIC acts as dead (no LED light at all).
NIC works on a cold boot without problems.

The problem is described at ArchWiki: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Network_Configuration#Realtek_no_link_.2F_WOL_issue

NIC info:
    NIC: Realtek RTL8139/810x Family
    Driver version: 5.719.325.2009

Linux info:
    DMESG: 8139too RealTek RTL8139
    Kernel built-in driver: RealTek RTL-8129/8130/8139 PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter
    Tried Kernel version 3.5.7 & latest 3.7.4  (gentoo-sources)

I can reproduce this everytime I disable "Shutdown WOL" property in Realtek's NIC driver on Windows and then rebooting machine.

DMESG output with and w/o working NIC is same except some differences in timing..
