Hey Dan, hmm...sounds interesting. It'd probably be better to answer if I knew the chipsets, but regardless... Sounds like either a motherboard issue or one of the following. But first if you can, test out one of the replacement nics on a different machine, make sure it works. If the replacement nics are all the same brand/chip but they work on other machines, then its probably a motherboard issue. If its a whole bunch of different brands/chips then it is possible that the slot your putting them in is shot, unless your using the same one as the realtek nic that worked. In that case I would say to check out your drivers and make sure your cards are compatible. One more thing, are these hooked up to a router or some network device that may be blocking based on MAC addresses? I'll try to help as much as I can.
