I would have to dig to see when it was last tested on real hardware
but I think Chris and I tested various NICs in the first part of last year.
It should have been working until when it was updated to the latest

Very likely it is something that broke in the Nexus device. But
as Gedare points out, it would be nice for someone to take interest
in the x86 port enough to either fix this or support a core developer
in fixing it

I believe networking also works on the arm/zynq on qemu and that
is more actively maintained.
