eth0 up but can't connect

eth0 says it is comming up but I can not connect to the network. I can ping the address on the nic but not anything on the network. Lite-On LNE100TX card with Mandrake 10.1. I have the same nic/os on another box working.

ifconfig output (typed manualy)
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet Hwaddr 00:AD:CCB:B3:5F
inet addr: Bcast Mask

This may not be of much help... But just got this doubt. Is your cable/other physical connections alright?

They should be. The lights come on and I connected my PDA to the lan though the same cable and was able to ping other machines on the network.
