Sad Xircom RealPort 10/100 RBEM56G-100 with RedHat 6.1

Hi all,
I'm running on my Dell Inspiron 3700 Linux RedHat 6.1 (2.2.12-20) and I have a Xircom RealPort 10/100 RBEM56G-100.
I was running with this configuration for the last 6 months connected (with a static IP address) to a 10 Mb LAN without any problem .... but the last week the network
amministrators changed the configuration of "some switch"
and after that I have an error at the startup
(Bringing up the eth0 interface .... failed)
and now my card doesn't work.
If now for example I try to activate the eth0 interface from the contro-panel I have:
....
ipcalc: ip address expected
ipcalc: ip address expected
ipcalc: ip address expected
ipcalc: ip address expected
broadcast: Host name lookup failure
Usage: grep [OPTION] ... PATTERN [FILE] ...
Try 'grep --help' for more information.
netmask: Host name lookup failure
SIOCADDRT: Network is unreachable
expr: syntax error

??????????????????????????????????????????????????????
??????????????????????????????????????????????????????

I am fairly new to Linux but I really have no idea
what I can do ?

I hope somebody can help me.

      thanks, Marco
p.s.
With Win the card works fine :-(( GRRRRRRR

I don't really understand how someone changing a setting on a switch
could cause these sorts of errors with the Red Hat network startup
script.

Maybe you should ask them exactly what they changed.  Are you quite
sure that whatever change they made is what caused this problem, and
it isn't just a coincidence?  Looking at the messages, it looks like
there is something really wrong with your network settings.

Do you get the same series of errors if you just type "ifup eth0"?  If
so, then you could post the output of "sh -x /sbin/ifup eth0".
