How to configure network on debian text mode?


I installed Debian 7.8.0 in text mode. While I configure eth0 through /etc/network/interface it assigned the IP but unable to ping to other machine in the network. I tried /etc/init.d/networking restart but still not working for me.

While I install GUI mode, it allows me configuration done through Network Manager and it pings good to other machine.

I have selected base install during the installation.
How to fix it under text mode?

..and the very first hit in Google for "how to configure networking in debian linux from command line" is:
https://wiki.debian.org/NetworkConfiguration

...complete documentation, with examples. As asked before, read the "Question Guidelines" link in my posting signature.
