The file /usr/lib/modprobe.d/broadcom-wl-dkms.conf blacklists the module tg3, which is needed for ethernet connectivity. This is a recent change.

broadcom-wl 6.30.223.271-292

Copying broadcom-wl-dkms.conf to /etc/modprobe.d/ and removing:

blacklist tg3

Restores ethernet connectivity.

On my machine, this is the device which requires tg3:

02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Inc. and subsidiaries NetXtreme BCM57765 Gigabit Ethernet PCIe (rev 10)
Subsystem: Broadcom Inc. and subsidiaries NetXtreme BCM57765 Gigabit Ethernet PCIe
Kernel driver in use: tg3
Kernel modules: tg3

There does not appear to be a conflict, both devices function properly when the blacklist of tg3 is removed, so I am at a loss to understand this change.
