I normally recommend that you troubleshoot the wired first, but I'm
afraid that it doesn't look too promising just yet - it appears to be a
kernel bug:
[ kernel breaks r8169 support for rtl8102e - note the
references to -7 as well]

So it might be better in this case to actually troubleshoot the wireless
so that at least you can get a connection. Unfortunately Atheros AR5007
requires some dedicated effort as well:


I recommend that for your system that you instead install hardy (8.04.2)
for now. You can first test via Vista by installing 8.04.2 using the
Wubi installer (and or a liveCD). Mirror downloads are located via this
If you don't wish to download via a torrent, then pick a mirror close to
you and download the wubi.exe for 8.04.2 from that. Example:


Once you've verified 8.04.2 works (either via Wubi or liveCD) then you
can reinstall hardy on your dual-boot. I _think_ that you should be OK
with the hardy installation/kernels.
