Dont try to change ur mac address , CentOS will automatically recognize your mac .
Do u use centos 5 or previous versions ?
in command mode type
Now The network configuration wizard will popup .
Now delete existing hardwares after clicking on hardware button .
Then click on device and select new > Ethernet > select your ethernet card > forward button > select automatically obtain IP with DHCP > APPLY .
Now check its working or not ,then reply back ..
