I'm at work at the moment and don't really have time to spend on this,
so please reply to the lunar mailing list where others maybe can.

ifconfig eth0	# or other unused/private IP address

see man ifconfig for details

if you use dhcpcd then gateway and dns stuff should be set for you.
if using manual configuration, you need to supply these addresses.

sorry, but I don't have this card, so don't know the current status,
but a web search shows old problems with 8139cp and 8139too conflict.
does that help?

Running lspci and ifconfig might give you some more clues.

I'm afraid I have no time to help further.
