I had a couple machines on our data network that seemed to exhibit that same problem. I would plug in the cable to the nic and nothing would happen. The same cable and network would work for other things. However, if that nic was plugged into our other network (POE phone) it would get an IP and work fine. I used dscacheutil -flushcache and that did not seem to help. Rebooted (such a PC solution) and that did seem to help in one case. Plugging one affected system into different networks and then back into the intended network seemed to clear out whatever was blocking it on one machine. Another machine actually turned out to have some damaged pins in the RJ45 connector on the nic.
No silver bullets here. Not even sure if the problems are the same. We are using procurve switches also.
