I have had similar problems with my laptop, and I added
ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.11 netmask 255.255.255.0
route add 192.168.1.11 dev eth0
to my /etc/init.d/network script and that took care of it.
Whenever I upgrade Debian, the PCMCIA stuff stops working, and I make a new
PCMCIA modules package and install it and that fixes the problem.
