I've had a look at Broadcoms diagnostic info & according to that this is what the CPU test does :
test opens the cpu.bin file. If file exists & content is good then it loads code to the RX & TX cpu & verifies CPU execution.
Now I am guessing here but it seems possible that the problem may be with the cpu.bin file rather than the actual NIC hardware itself. I may of course be wrong. But in theory, one way of testing this would be to reinstall the Broadcom driver/software. You may want to try this first.
It could also mean that your NIC has died.
You said you tried to ping the laptop from another machine. Have you tried pinging out from the laptop instead?
You need to make sure that ping is not being blocked by any firewall first obviously.
Let me know how you get on
