lspci command in a terminal. You may need to be root to run it.

Do you use a static ip address or DHCP?

Is it possible in you,re distro to find out if it do recognize you,re LAN card and that it use the proper driver
It is a on board LAN card is it not ?
I prefer Lan card in a PCI slot.

Thats strange considering the last line of your ifconfig below shows an ethernet device.

-------------------------------------------
02:08.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) LAN Controller (rev 01)
-------------------------------------------

Do you get an ip address on another interface if you just do "ifconfig"?

Judging from the codes 82801G in the line of the Intel Ethernet Controller and 802.11abg in the line for the Atheros NIC, I'm guessing you're using a Wireless device, right?
Perhaps the wlan device is disabled?
