windows 2008 r2 64 on dl380g4

Hi, I have just installed windows 2008 r2 64 bit (I did use the without_hyperV cd) on a dl380g4 server and I have problem on network: no way to connect it (I am sure the physical connection is ok, because the server was running w2003 before with the same ip address).
After the os installation net (nc7782 broadcom) seems unable to communicate with the router: the count of packed received is stuck at 0.

I also installed smartstart 8.50 and the latest net driver and net manager, but the problem is unchanged. Looking around I saw some threads about network identification and firewalling, so I did lower all the securities (I did assign private network to unidentified net, disabled the firewall and so on), with no results.

I tried to connect just 1 net link at a time, to disable ipv6 or to form a network team on the 2 nics (like before in w2003), but nothing change.

I suppose something related to the driver, but anybody has a clue about the problem?

Thank you
