Let's back up a bit. Please do these tests and report results:

1. If you manually assign an IP address to the NIC, can you ping it?
2. Assuming you can ping the NIC, can you ping the router? If not, have 
you checked the Ethernet cable?
3. If you're using a "known good" Ethernet cable, what do the logs show?
