I would advise you that you use "flips-ore" and "ore" instead of 
flips-lxdrv with the integrated e1000 driver. "flips-ore" contains no 
hardware drivers at all, however implements a interface to access the 
network by using ORe, our network multiplexer. So, it is a kind of 
generic solution to decouple the IP stack from the network driver. ORe 
supports various network cards based on drivers from Linux 2.4 and 2.6, 
so you have here better possibilities to get your NIC running. To 
configure drivers go to l4/pkg/ore/server and call a make O=.. config.
