This time I booted with the option cli (whatever that means?).

As reported I can't get an Internet connection with my Davicon eth card unless I boot in "cli" mode. BTW thanks Kidd.

Now here is a new twist:
If I boot "cli vga=791" again I cannot connect to the Internet.

May be this will give a clue to the developer.

That is the strangest thing I've heard in a long time.

Ditto. If I were a betting man it would seem to me to some sort of weird PCI BIOS conflict between the ethernet card and your video card. But maybe I'm way off the planet here  Tongue

If I were you I would go into your BIOS setup, reset it to its default values, then reset the time and anything else that needs doing, but leave everything else, and then reboot and try again. Also, show us the output to these commands when it works and when it doesn't work:
Code:
dmesg | grep eth0
lspci

In my BIOS there is no reset to default values.

The outputs of lspci are identical.

Of dmesg|grep eth0
not connecting
eth0: Davicom DM9102/DM9102A rev 64 at MMIO 0xdfffff00, 00:08:A1:8C:44:5A, IRQ 17.

connected:
eth0: Davicom DM9102/DM9102A rev 64 at MMIO 0xdfffff00, 00:08:A1:8C:44:5A, IRQ 17.
eth0: Davicom DM9102 at pci0000:00:0b.0, 00:08:a1:8c:44:5a, irq 17.

Now I found when booting in cli mode module dmfe is not loaded, only tulip, therefore rmmod tulip and modprobe dmfe I can connect to the Internet. Booting in all other modes dmfe and tulip are loaded. Removing only tulip I cannot connect, however removing both dmfe and tulip and then modprobe dmfe again I can get a connection.
