Well, you could start by posting your configuration. ifconfig -a,
netstat -rn would be the essentials to debug such a problem.

Also send them, from both a working and a non-working kernel.

Then, I see you have two ethernet interfaces. Warning: the order in
which they are initialized and thus the interface number they get might
change between kernel versions. Thus, eth0 might not always be the

Also, pay attention to whether you have both ethernet drivers as modules
or compiled-in. If modules, then order of loading is important.

Then, if the PNIC-II is a GigE card, it may not be supported in old
kernel versions...
