I had the same problem recently.I called up my ISP for support.They solved the problem by connecting to the router( from my computer and they changed the type of connection under the WAN option to PPPoE from Bridge.Bridge connection will work only for Windows whereas PPPoe works for both.Just change this option and you should be done.

Best of Luck .

Hello, today I got the same problem, on my ubuntu 8.10 server, with same type of card. After lots of googling I finally found the solution here

In my case, something set the mac address to HWaddr 00:00:00:00:00:00, so I added somenthing like this

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp
hwaddress ether 01:02:03:04:05:06

to sudo gedit /etc/network/interfaces

Hope this helps someone

Ever think your NIC might be dead in the water? You can pick one up really cheap at Radio Shack/Best Buy/etc. I am willing to bet that's the issue.
