Hi skazac, and a warm welcome to the forums!
Is that Interface dragged to the top of Network>Show:>Network Port Configurations and checked ON?
Then... Try putting these numbers in Network>TCP/IP>DNS Servers, for the Interface you connect with...
At the Apple Icon at top left>About this Mac.
Then click on More Info>Network, then click on the Ethernets on the right, any info there?

I don't think that buying a USB/Ethernet adaptor resolves the issue of your ethernet not working.
I suddenly am having the same problem with my dual 2.5 G5. I've run TechTool Deluxe and don't have any errors to report. However, the ethernet port is simply not working. I haven't changed anything on my network. I can't even connect to the router. All other networked devices are fine.
Me too! I've been trying to figure out why it suddenly stopped recognizing that it's actually connected to internet (I get a green light for built-in ethernet connection) but safari says that I', not connected.
I thought it must be because I'm running Mac Leopard Server software on it, but this has been installed for past 3 years and has always connected no problem.

I thought I was losing my mind. I too cannot connect to the Internet. Got a G5 donated and bought a USB wireless adapter to eliminate a long ethernet cable across the room. Followed all the specs and procedures, got a connected green light on the network presences as well as all green lights and connections with the wireless USB. Set up manual settings with DHCP and get a green connection, green network, and even green ISP. But cannot connect to Internet. Mac Mall is telling me that the USB is defective but I think not.
Then I decide to run a 25' ethernet cable across the room and again, same thing! Green lights and connected status but cannot connect to Internet. I do not know what to do.
