Is the box using a static IP or a DHCP IP?
Meanwhile, you might want to check out your network configuration files:


Also, just doing an ifdown eth0 might not always tell you the truth; I
like to run: /sbin/service network restart
...it will show you if the network is properly shutting down and
properly restarting.

There is always mii-tool and ethtool to check the status of the card as
well - and there is always the possibility that either the network cable
might not be in top condition, or the network card itself might be on
it's way "south".
