[SATLUG] stumped

Folks,
I am stumped after an upgrade, I lost ethernet and wireless on an older
Dell latitude, and am not sure why. dmesg shows the modules loading fine,
and recognizing the hardware, ditto in lspci -v. But trying to configure
eth0 or wlan0 is impossible. Here is the output, I would appreciate if
someone has some ideas of whatelse I could check. Strangely, when I boot
with the rescue disk ethernet works just fine. Must be missing something
here...
