If I recall correctly, the eeepc 1000H has an Attansic L1E, not an L1, ethernet controller chipset.  FreeBSD RELENG_7 has support for the L1 and the L2, but I've heard that the L1E doesn't work yet.  You should do some searching for a driver, it's possible one of our fine developers is looking for helping testing one they're working on.  ;)
