Please post your /etc/network/interfaces, the output of 

dmesg | grep eth

and try to add the driver for your network interface to /etc/modules to
make sure it is loaded early enough. Also tell us what lspci says about
your network adapter, but please don't post the complete output of
lspci, only the one line for the network adapter.
