Thank you. If it can be of some help, I may test something. I am
currently using upstream 2.6.32 compiled with make-kpkg on lenny. My
Ethernet chip is RTL8111D according to the motherboard manual, and the
MB itself is Gigabyte GA-P55-UD5.

'lspci -v' says:

[ About the script I posted, if anyone wants to use it in the meantime:
  I noticed one can be more specific by replacing the "ifup/ifdown -a"
  calls with "ifup/ifdown $interfaces". ]
