NatSemi dp83815 driver won't ping (from an HP laptop)

Description of problem:
lsmod would recognize this card. "neat" could identify the card and activate
eth0 on a "static" configuration but not on a DHCP configuration. Under DHCP no
ip address could be assigned.
Under static configuration, I could order 192.168.0.101 , netmask 255.255.255.0
and gateway of 192.168.0.1 and could get this HP pavilion ze4101 to ping itself
100%. I could ping the router (192.168.0.1) and get about 40% to 60% responses.
I called Red Hat Incident reporting and was advised to write a bugzilla
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Instll red hat 7.3
2.add boot option "nopcmcia" and "nomce"
3.Try to configure DHCP, then static for NIC connection
Actual Results: static would ping, DHCP would not ping the router (d-link 604)
or outside world
Expected Results: eth0 should work as a static configuration or under DHCP.
Laptop should connect to the internet through the router.
Other issues with the HP pavilion seem unrelated.
First, it hangs on pcmcia initiation, even without a pcmcia card in the slot,
and second, a kernel panic ensues each time unless a boot option is passed to
boot: linux nomce.
On the other hand, they may be related. Also the internal modem seems to be a
"winmodem" that is, software configured.
Red Hat apologizes that these issues have not been resolved yet. We do want to
make sure that no important bugs slip through the cracks.
