what are you connecting to?
direct to another PC or via a switch/router/hub?
You could try removing & reinstalling the TCP/IP component of the LAN connection, sometimes this corrupts.

I was gonna suggest trying swapping the cable jusy by cheking thr question but if you're trying to connect to something where there's no DHCP server then none of your NICs are gonna get a control signal from it...

If this cable goes straight to a modem you might want to check with your ISP that they dont use MAC based registration, and if they do, ask them to reset it for your account...

If you are really interested in solving this issue give us more data please:

a) What are you connecting to and how is you LAN/WAN?
b) How do you know that the NIC is sending data but not receiving?
c) What is the result of a IPCONFIG /all command?

Take in mind that having local pings don't means that you aren't firewalled because the local pings use another interface 'a virtual one'.

Are you sure the NIC is in FULL Duplex 10 / 100 Mbps ? Ensure that the Windows Setting in Media type is Full Duplex 10 or 100 Mbps and then try.

Hope this Helps
