Can't stay connected to Network: Debian


I disabled the onboard NIC. I added a PCI card and connected the ethernet cable to it.

I can connect to the internet if I enable the connection in the upper corner of the desktop (I think through Network Manager). I lose the connection every time I shutdown the computer, and have to reconnect.

Here is some information I gathered:
Code:
lspci
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation 82815 815 Chipset Host Bridge and Memory Controller Hub (rev 02)
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82815 CGC [Chipset Graphics Controller] (rev 02)
00:1e.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation 82801 PCI Bridge (rev 02)
00:1f.0 ISA bridge: Intel Corporation 82801BA ISA Bridge (LPC) (rev 02)
00:1f.1 IDE interface: Intel Corporation 82801BA IDE U100 (rev 02)
00:1f.2 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801BA/BAM USB (Hub #1) (rev 02)
00:1f.3 SMBus: Intel Corporation 82801BA/BAM SMBus (rev 02)
00:1f.4 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801BA/BAM USB (Hub #2) (rev 02)
01:0b.0 Multimedia audio controller: Ensoniq ES1371 [AudioPCI-97] (rev 06)
01:0d.0 Ethernet controller: Macronix, Inc. [MXIC] MX987x5 (rev 25)


Code:
etc/network/interfaces
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
allow-hotplug eth1
iface eth1 inet dhcp

auto eth1

Code:
ethtool eth1
it tells me there is no data available.

I would appreciate help in resolving this.

I think that if you have disabled the onboard nic, then the new card becomes eth0, rather than eth1. Try "ethtool eth0" and let's see what happens.
