I have had similar problems with my laptop, and I added
ifconfig eth0 netmask
route add 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.
