    This is very strange. I have seen this before with wireless ethernet but not wired ethernet. I would suggest creating a new network location from within the Network pane of System Preferences. You could also try deleting the /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration folder, which contains all your network settings, and restarting the iMac.
