Apparently the warm reboot leaves the nic in a state where it cannot

Linux. Of course, as you have found, going from Linux to windoze
works just fine.

Surely the first thing a driver should do when starting up, is send
whatever commands are necessary to the device to completely reset it to
a known state. A driver that doesn't do that is buggy, and a NIC that
doesn't allow a reset is also buggy. Avoid both!

Maybe because the driver considers that resetting is the job of the
reset button.

The other problem is the "system" considering it is the only "system" in
the machine, and thus thinking that a warm reboot is proper always and
that it knows the current state of everything. That the previous running
system was the same system and thus all is in the expected state.
