Yes, thats what I meant with the card being detected:

'modprobe ne io=0x300 irq=3' gives me something like:
NE*000 ethercard probe at 0x300: 52 54 4c 1c 84 2e
eth1: NE2000 found at 0x300, using IRQ 3.

then ifconfig eth1 seems to work ok, but the transmission itself
does not work, like if the cable was damaged (but the cable is good, I checked
with the other card).

It is like this action triggers the card to start do its network job. Perhaps this is your problem too ? Has anyone else encounters it and/or knows/have suggestions how it can be solved ? 

Did not do any good. I will try changing IRQ again... thats the most likely
cause for this misbehaviour I think. Btw, when I said it worked for windows,
thats not on the same computer (that one only has linux). I will try again on
a windoze pc just to check the card has not fried in the meantime. I will also
try to get the NE2000 test for linux.
