Sounds like a routing issue. Can you post the output of:
route -n

This seems odd. Try this as root:
ifup eth0

Then post the output of:
ifconfig
route -n

ifconfig
LO link encap : local loopback
int addr : 192.168.1.101 Mask : 255.255.255.0
up loopback running MTU : 16436 Metric : 1
RX packets : 32 erors : 0 dropped : 0 overuns : 0 frame : 0
TX packets : 32 erors : 0 dropped : 0 overuns : 0 carrier : 0
collisions : 0 txqueuelen : 0
RX bytes : 2336 (2.2 kb) TX bytes : 2336 (2.2 kb)

Kernel IP routing table

Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref use Iface






...... thats it, thats all there is. shouldnt eth0 show up under ifconfig? and why isnt there any info comming up under the routing table?

Hi. Try following.
In BIOS (when you computer restarts press DEL) disable plug and play OS.
This would allow your ethernet card to be configured proparly under linux.
Then configuration would be a piece of cake.
You may try DHCP or static depends on router settings too.
Enjoy

Adding to david_ross' post, did Linux even detect your network card ?
Post the output of the following command:
Code:
dmesg | grep -i eth
