That probably means that the card is not screwed in tightly inside the
computer, or there is a loose contact somewhere. The module you have
chosen is correct (rtl8139.o), and the card is PCI, so I cannot think of
any other reason. Check the cabling, the hub etc.

Most likely that the I/O address is wrong. I usually run the shell loop

for i in 220 240 260 280 300 320; do modprobe -t net ne io=0x$i &&
break; done

and enter the I/O address where the shell loop breaks out in
/etc/conf.modules. You too can try that. All ISA cards that I have seen
are ne compatible.
