comment On resume from sleep, DHCP or ARP on the ethernet is not working
FWIW, this problem may have been a bad ethernet port. I haven't seen it since I moved the cable.

comment Java applets in a browser on Mavericks?
Thanks for the confirmation it does work for you. I've tried reinstalling and no joy. Doesn't show up in Firefox or Safari plugs, despite clearly being in the Internet Plug-Ins directory. Does your Java system preferences tool show the same bug I'm reporting above?

FWIW, I think that may be a different problem. On my system I don't seen that "enable - failed" error. I can't remember if ifconfig shows the Ethernet interface up, but if it is up it's not configured with an IP address.
