Problems with ethernet card

Hi all,
I recently upgraded to Ubuntu Intrepid form hardy using apt-get dist-upgrade.
I replaced everything that had to do with hardy to intrepid in /etc/apt/sources.list.
The upgrade seems to have been working fine, but my integrated ethernet card doesn't seem to work.
I know that there was a problem with the integrated Intel ethernet cards but that should have been resolved with the final version.
Here is the output of ifconfig:
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:1b:fc:20:ff:6d  
          RX packets:5 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0

          RX bytes:1390 (1.3 KB)  TX bytes:1814 (1.8 KB)

lo        Link encap:Local Loopback  
          inet addr:  Mask:

          collisions:0 txqueuelen:0 
          RX bytes:23144 (23.1 KB)  TX bytes:23144 (23.1 KB)

I have no CDs or DVDs at the moment so i can try the live CD and see if i get the same problem there.
Any thoughts?
Many thanks,
