To be able to help you, we need to positively identify your ethernet device.
Please run this command
Code:
lspci -n

and report the results.

You need the upgraded Intel e1000e ethernet driver,
available for Puppy versions 5.1 - 5.2.8 here -

See PCI ID repository
Else if your system support it, you can use elspci -l

Yes, an online list of PCI ID's will tell you what device (brand/model/type) relates to each device ID,
then you can check this ID against the entire list of ID's supported by Puppy's kernel modules, by looking at /lib/modules/<kernelversion>/modules.pcimap and /lib/modules/<kernelversion>/modules.usbmap.
Of course, I have many additional third-party drivers installed on my system, so I have more device ID's listed than on a standard Puppy installation. But in your case it was relatively easy anyway; you were likely to need one of the Intel ethernet drivers, e1000, e1000e or igb, and it was just a question of which one.
You can query the e1000e driver, yourself, with this command -
Code:
modinfo e1000e

and you will see listed all supported device ID's (including your own) in this format -
Code:
alias:          pci:v00008086d00001502...
