If your MAC is not set the switch/router will not know to which MAC to send packets and that's probably why it doesn't work even though everything is up.
In MiNT, if you do a ifconfig en0, what MAC do you see, If it's all 00:00:00:00:00:00 that would confirm that this is indeed the issue.
The NetUSBee should have an eeprom on it that contains the MAC and I believe there is a tool to set it of it's not set : http://lotharek.pl/zasoby/produkty/73/pliki/setmac.prg
Try that and that might fix the issue
Next thing would be , if you have a managed switch (I use Cisco and Arista switches), to check if the port goes in errdisable on the switch and if it does what is the reason for this.
At this point as it fails with multiple TCP/IP stack and other tools it's most probably a hardware issue like a bad chip, bad RJ45 plug or bad MAC even if present, also .. I assume you checked the cable .

1. Make sure you have the correct ENEC3.XIF, the Assamsoft driver seems to be the very best. If you use Assamsoft your port will be ne0 not en0. (http://assemsoft.atari.org/ne2k/index.html)
2. Use the Vanillamint network setup utility only, don't mess with mac address stuff.
Also note uiptool does not work inside mint, only TOS.
