Ah, is it perhaps rfkill related?

I've seen issues with rfkill before, where it is implemented as
"disable the power to the entire slot" rather than assert the RF kill
line to the device.
It's possible this is how it has to happen with the intel NICs?

do you have an rfkill button on the keyboard to enable/disable wireless?
Try toggling that, then do pciconf -lv again?

You can read the entire set of pci configuration registers:

pciconf -rb pciX.X.X.X 0:255

If they show up as 0xffffffff then the NIC is disconnected/powered
off/hung. Try toggling the RF kill key on your keyboard, then re-read
those config registers.
