you should try to use tcpdump to check that packets are
coming up to your host, and not blocked by some firewall

you could use just a little chain before every other rules,
to check that packet coming on eth0 have the right IP
address, and then setup this chain using some "post-up"
script, triggered by the DHCP client (if your IP is
assigned by DHCP).
