After doing pacman -Syu, ethernet on my desktop stopped working. The card on my laptop is the same, at least according to lspci, and is working fine.
When I upgraded, there was a change in syntax in rc.conf for defining the network, but I'm just attempting dhcp for now before I try to set up a static ip:
interface=eth0 address= netmask= gateway=
Could you try with your old rc.conf? We didn't drop support for the old syntax, so it should still work. It would be good to rule that one out before anything else I think.
Secondly, could you possibly downgrade some of your packages to figure out which one caused the problem? My guess is going to be kernel26, initscripts or udev.
One more thing: have you noticed the change of syntax in rc.conf for blacklisting modules? Did you blacklist any modules before, that is not getting blacklisted anymore? Could you try blacklisting them using modprobe.conf?
Please file a bug report if none of this solves your problem.
