RTL8101E not found


I've got a RTL8101E NIC card (version b0). It is a gigabit ethernet card with a PCI-Express interface. It is listed in the output of lspci. I load the driver in the kernel with modprobe. The loading seems to be fine because 'lsmod' shows the module and I don't see any error neither in the console or in the output of 'dmesg'. The problem is that the eth0 interface is not getting loaded... it can also be verified by the fact that the 'use count' of the module is 0.

That card is supposed to be supported by the module r8169 that modern kernels include (i'm using 2.6.22-14-generic by the way) but it doesn't work for me. So I tried with the driver r8101-1.005.00 from Realtek... and i got the same result...

Any idea someone? Where can I find more debugging information?
