LCIII Networking Help

I've been playing around with an old LCIII that I purchased off of Ebay a while ago for which I recently bought a PDS network card. I upgraded the OS to 7.6 since it seemed like the logical choice since I wanted the LCIII to use DHCP to connect to my local network. Unfortuately, I'm having little luck of it connecting to anything. I'm conneting it to a D-Link DI-624 hub (which is acting as a DHCP server). The network adapter green LED is lit when connected to the HUB but I can't get it to talk to anything. I've tried two different network cables and two separate PDS network cards. Am I missing something. Is there a special setting in OS 7.6 (other than the TCP/IP control panel which I've already set) to get the LC to talk to the outside world? Thanks for the help!

IIRC, some older Macs had trouble connecting with 10/100 auto-sensing routers and hubs.

Other suggestion...have you tried setting the Mac's IP rather than using DHCP from the router?
Are you able to use Appletalk from the LC to other devices on your network?

No Driver.

First, thanks for the reply's!

These network cards claim to not need a driver on an LC under OS 7.5+ (the cards were brand new in an unopened box). My LCIII seems to recognize the card as it lets me select ethernet under the TCP/IP settings (unless they just do that even if a card isn't there.) Do you think thats the problem?

Regarding eeun's info:
I've tried setting the Mac to a static IP through the MacOS TCP/IP control panel but that didn't seem to fix it. Do I need to reboot the LCIII each time I change a network setting. Looking at the connection log of my hub I don't even see the mac connected at all (no DHCP requests from the LCIII's network adapter) Also, I don't have any other Mac computers on this network so AppleTalk is out.
