Sounds like your network is not being setup properly at boot. Even after
the card is detected the system needs to add routes in and out over
it. This is usually done in /etc/init.d/network. Here's mine:

#!	/bin/sh
ifconfig lo
route add -net
ifconfig eth0 ${IPADDR} netmask ${NETMASK} broadcast ${BROADCAST}
route add -net ${NETWORK}
route add default gw ${GATEWAY} metric 1

IPADDR is your IP address, etc. You could look at the `ifconfig' and
`route' man pages for more details, as well as the NET-2-HOWTO.

Hope that helps,
