If you are showing a connection (XP will have 2 computers in the bottom right-hand corner with a red x to show not connected), and you're still not getting an IP, then it could be the card, but more than likely it could be the cable, or the router itself. Some things to check:

Are the correct drivers installed for the network card? Check device manager.
Have you used that cable with any other connection? If not- try it.
Have you tried a different port on the router? If not- try it.

Let us know what you see/find out. Ane we'll go from there.

Are you fammilar with packet sniffers?

I'd run a popular packet sniffer such as wireshark on the problemed PC to see if it can see information from the rest of the network. I'd unplug the cable, start the program, plug in the cable and see if you see anything.
