Unhappy Ethernet card not working when '/etc/rc.d/init.d/network restart'.

My ethernet card (National Semi|DP83820 10/100/1000 Ethernet Controller) is not working properly, it works on bootup and just works but when I do '/etc/rc.d/init.d/network restart' I get:
Shutting down loopback interface:                          [  OK  ]
Setting network parameters:                                [  OK  ]
Bringing up loopback interface:                            [  OK  ]
Bringing up interface eth0:
Determining IP information for eth0...PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
--- ping statistics ---
3 packets transmitted, 0 received, +3 errors, 100% packet loss, time 1999ms
, pipe 4
This does not happen with my other ethernet card (nVidia Corporation|nForce2 Ethernet Controller.), which is integraded with my motherbord.

Any idea why this might happen?

If you have two ethernet interfaces, one will be eth0, the other will be eth1. The /etc/rc.d/init.d/ script may be pinging out of the wrong interface. I suggest you post again with a description of what you want to do with each interface, and show us what you have inside the /etc script you were using.
