I might be asking an obvious question here but do you have an ethernet ->
DMX converter?  You would need one for that to work.

Lowest cost solution I have found with a quick google would be arduino
based: http://hackaday.com/2009/10/02/arduino-dmx-controller/

Good luck!  That thing looks pretty cool.  I bought a bunch of LEDs at one
point from sparkfun and wrote some software to do MIDI controlled
addressing... too bad my band broke up before finishing it :)
