According to this: you problem seems to be kernel related.

It would have been useful if you had mentioned that this is related to the rtl8139 chipset in your wired lan interface. Also you will have to let us know what distro and kernel you are trying to use - let me guess - debian lenny or at least a debian lenny based distro?
