Hi Jorge,

Mike's suggestion is correct. The LPC32xx ethernet driver needs ethaddr from 
the bootargs. For Linux-, the 'ethaddr' is stored in SPI EEPROM. For 
Linux-2.6.34, the 'ethaddr' is stored in u-boot environment.

From your boot log, it seems like the 'ethaddr' is not set properly:
Kernel command line: console=ttyTX0,115200n8 root=/dev/nfs rw 
nfsroot=,wsize=1500,rsize=1500 ethadd
r=${ethaddr} ip=dhcp init=/sbin/init
