Mandriva 2008.0, problem with DLink DFE520TX ethernet adapter


Greetings everyone.
I had a little accident over the weekend,and lightning fried my LAN card. I was lucky that the other parts were left unhurt. However I replaced my roasted Digi-5700TX LAN card with the DFE520TX, and booted up the system.
The problem is that the network is not working; Mandriva shows that the network is up, with the correct IP and gateway, but I cannot connect. I tried to ping the gateway, and got a "destination host unreachable". However I tried to ping myself and was able to ping myself.
Any one can tell me where I can look at?
Thanks.
Tank Jr.

You have to reconfigure your network in the Mandriva Control Center(mcc). You can open up mcc by going into Menu>Tools>System Tools>Configure Your Computer, IIRC.
Enter your root password when prompted and when mcc comes up go to Network & Internet. From there go to "Remove a connection" to get rid of your present configuration for your card and then reconfigure by going to "Set up a network interface" and follow the on screen prompts.
