Exclamation Ethernet not working! (forcedeth)

Hi!

I use archlinux and gentoo linux. I used to use wireless, but now I have the possibility to use cable.

But for some reason I can't get it to work, not in arch, gentoo, knoppix (livecd) or ubuntu (livecd).

It always times out when trying to get an IP... And on dmesg I always get the same "forcedeth: eth0: no link during initialization" error.. :-(

ethtool
Code:
[sa@Feio ~]$ sudo ethtool eth0
Settings for eth0:
    Supported ports: [ MII ]
    Supported link modes:   10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full 
                            100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full 
                            1000baseT/Full 
    Supports auto-negotiation: Yes
    Advertised link modes:  10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full 
                            100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full 
                            1000baseT/Full

dmesg
Code:

ifconfig
Code:
[sa@Feio ~]$ ifconfig -a
