you already have them. you have 8139too or the older rtl8139 drivers already on your system ready for use. they have been solidly reliable in every stock Linux kernel for at least 5 years now

Its highly likely that its just not configured right, not that the drivers aren't present, what made you think it was the drivers?

without knowing your distro i cant advise the easiest way to configure it, what does ifconfig show?

I have several 8139's here. They are included in the kernel as said, even in the older distros... Assuming you have some sort of reasonably current distro or kernel this millenium you should be fine with them... As said, more likely network config...

dmesg | grep eth0

might tell you something about the driver in use...
