First the easiest option.  I'll assume that you've configured your
network correctly, and "ifconfig eth0" looks fine (right IP address
and netmask, but shows no packets in or out).  You might just have an
interrupt conflict with some other built-in device.  Start by
excluding interrupts in /etc/pcmcia/config.opts (there are examples),
and see if that helps.  The card is using irq 3 now... exclude that
and reboot, and it will use the next seemingly-free interrupt.  Repeat
until either the card works or you run out of options.

If that doesn't help... then you might benefit from a PCMCIA driver
update.  There are instructions in the HOWTO for upgrading your PCMCIA
