I have a test machine running Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.7 and it sees that there is a NIC but it will not pull an address. I have tried setting the IP Address manually which results in no network connection.
Can someone give me some direction or point me in the direction to get this fixed?

I have the exact same problem! I tried booting with linux just to make sure there was no issue with the card, and it works perfectly. Only in OSX does it give an issue. FYI, I believe I Had it working in Leopard, but it's been awhile since I used it. I can't get it to work with neither Lion, nor Mountain Lion as I tried both.

Mine was listed incorrectly as:
Kext name: RealtekR1000SL.kext
I moved that kext to /System/Library/Extensions/myHack.kext/Contents/PlugIns/RealtekR1000SL.kext.disabled and rebooted.
Now I get:
Kext name: AppleRTL8169Ethernet.kext
And everything works splendidly. (http://myhack.sojugarden.com/)
There's a native Apple one too, but because I'm using myHack, this is what it loaded.
I've shared the kext here for your convenience: http://ge.tt/91nFaBP/v/0
don't forget to rebuild your cache. I'd only try this one if you have the same problem as I did, and the system one does NOT work. (I'm not trying the system one since mine works)
