Open terminal and type "/sbin/ifconfig -a" without the quotes. It should list eth0 and lo as your two ethernet devices, although it could list others. If you do not see an eth0 then linux is not recognizing your network card. Assuming it's there make sure it has a valid IP address from your network. If it does not then try "/sbin/ifconfig eth0 down" then type "/sbin/ifconfig eth0 up". Check to see if it lists a valid IP. If not then check with your network administrator and make sure they readily release IP addresses via DHCP. They might have MAC filtering and are not releasing an IP to your pc b/c it is not known.
