'Device not ready' Message to D-Link DFE-580TX Wired Network Adapters.

Strangely that my 3 Quad port network adapters can be recognised when I write the 'ifconfig' command, but they all seem to be in 'Device not ready' state when I click on the networking tab at the toolbar (please see pictures below).



At the 'System Setting' they all seem to be recognised but again, their state doesn't change when I plug a network cable into them.



Could anybody advise if there is a solution to this problem? I'm a new Linux user (Have been using it for the past month).



The network adapters I have are the D-Link DFE-580TX.



The adapters used to work excellent with 11.10, but since I switched to 12.04 (32bit or 64bit) they stopped working.



From the Toolbar menu, it says that it's a 'Wired Network (D-Link DL 10050 Sundance Ethernet).



Thank you all.
