some things you need to check.
Netmask with 10.x.x.x it should be not
Gateway is it set to dhcp should handle the gateway.

you can see what is the current setting for the ethernet by typing in "ifconfig"
unconfigured cards are set to "169.254.x.x"

one thing to start with is to see if "ifup eth0" does anything.

gateway it should get from dhcp ( AHT-e300)
may be something wrong with driver sis900 ?
