Kernel 2.6.17 and 2.6.18-3-K7 network problem

Hi all, I posted the question below to debian-user ...
maybe nobody experienced my same issue. How can I
contribute to eventually solve? Which other information are
necessary in order to focalize the problem?

I want to ask if somebody experienced the same
problem I have with etch installation and in general with
kernel 2.6.17 and 2.6.18 on AMD K7. The computer where I
tried has 2 network cards, I connect only 1 card and it
receives the IP address.

I experienced the problem installing etch using a
businesscard, using knoppix 5.0.1 (use kernel 2.6.17) and
upgrading from sarge (kernel 2.6.8) to etch (kernel
In the last case, with the same installation if I chose
kernel 2.6.8 I have no network problem (but X does not work
:( ). If I choose the kernel 2.6.18 X is OK but I am not
able to reache many sites. I can navigate very few sites
example: www.google.com and www.mozilla.org. Using ethereal
seems that the HTTP request go out (i.e. GET / ....) but
the ACK packet does not ask the next packet number .... in
other words seems that the GET request never reched the
final site.

I tryied to reduce the MTU but was unsuccesful. 
Last details: the network card is the Realtek ....
