Look into /etc/ to see if you have any backup copies of /etc/modules.conf. If so, copy the backup over the current /etc/modules.conf. I suspect that you have more problems than just the network (e.g. sound may also be not working).
If you don't have a backup file, you have two choices: You can either manually add all the missing information to /etc/modules.conf, or you can use your distributions configuration program and reconfigure your system.

To add network support, add this line to /etc/modules.conf:

alias eth1 8139too

Which distribution are you using?

Actually , " ...more recent that .." means that you have a problem with the system date in the 90% of case .
First check thtis .
