I Cannot Get My Internet Connection to Work Under the "testing" version of Debian


I did a "netinstall" of the "testing" version of Debian today on my Asus M50VM laptop. The installation went just fine; therefore, I must be able to connect to the Internet. However, when I go to use Iceweasel, or any other browser, I cannot connect to the Internet. Debian seems to recognizing my card and detecting my router. However, I cannot view any web pages or even log into my router while using Debian. Any help would be very much appreciated.

I am trying to connect via ethernet. Here is the output of cat /etc/network/interfaces:

#The loopback network interface
auto lo inet loopback

#The primary network interface
allow-hotplug eth0
iface eth0 inet dchp
