Unidentifed Network Problems? Check the MAC Address.

Been pulling my hair out for a few days trying to solve an unidentified network problem with my Marvell Yukon 88E8052 . Tried all the fixes I found on the web and nothing worked. I finally did an ipconfig all and noticed the MAC address reported was totally bogus (something like F0-00-00-00-00-00). I went into adapter settings - advanced tab and configured the network name (MAC address) manually. As soon as I did that windows recognized the network and asked what type it was. I've been golden ever since.
