is it getting an ip address on its own?
did you overclock?
Is the LAN port being detected? Is the light blinking when you connect it?
You could try XP or a Linux distro(no need to install just a live CD will do). It'll rule out hardware problem.
I mean a different OS. Linux doesn't have to be installed to use it. Just boot up the CD.
Edit: Be happy to give you a step by step procedure if you need it.
Yes. I'm suggesting you try then instead of Vista.
I'm not saying you completely replace it here. You just need to test it with a different OS. Then you'll know if it's vista's fault or not.
My friend has one of those P5K and if he set the PCI-E frequency to anything bigger than 110MHz, the network port wouldn't work , so check it.
Then try what xfire said. Burn a copy of Ubuntu to a CD, restart but instead of installing it, use the Try Ubuntu without making any changes to my computer. If you have network on Ubuntu, then the problem is Windows, if not, you may have a problem with your board.
I had a similar problem, bios flashed fine but network ports went dead. Though they were working fine before the flash. For me it was just to reset the bios and well the computer was off/rebooting. I had to go disconnect the cable from the hub/modem (just not the pc). Then powering on the pc, and reattaching the cable.
load default settings in bios and try cfos speed
