On the 2.6.24 kernel the e1000 module should work.  Try 'modprobe
e1000'. 

I had serious issues with Debian Lenny and my network on a R61 and in
the end I did two things: reset the bios to factory default and
install Ubuntu Hardy - and everything just worked. 

The problem I had (and I have tried about 4 or 5 different kernels) on
Debian was that I had intermittent network.  It sometimes just died
and then I had to restart network-manager again.

I will probably again try Debian on the R61 just to make sure that I
did not suspect Debian falsely :)

Johann
