output of ifconfig

This says you don't have any Network Interface drivers installed. You might contact the mfr of your computer for Linux drivers. The other thing would be to buy a new NIC that has linux drivers with it.

I have researched this a little and I can't seem to find any reports of people not being able to get internet with one of those Intel LAN controllers. You seems to have an odd case there. Which livecd are we talking about exactly? It could be either a buggy livecd or one that is too old to have support for that particular controller.

do you mean that the cd i used to burn the iso image on is not good or the image itself?

That could be either. Did you check the md5sum before and after burning? Intel NICs are generally well supported so I am rather surprised it doesn't seem to work. If you look inside /lib/modules/[kernel-version]/kernel/drivers/net, do you find modules that start with e (like e100, e1000, etc.)?

i didn't checked the md5sum yet, i have to find it but i have looked in the folder you said and there were a lot of files including the following which you meant :
e100.ko
folder : e1000
e1000.ko
e2100.ko
eepro.ko
eepro100.ko
epic100.ko

The e drivers are for intel NICs. They should cover most of them. Try this:
dmesg | grep net.
That might give us a little more detail. As it is, it's really difficult to find out the exact type of intel NIC.

When I do ddmesg | grep net I get the following

root@james-desktop:/home/james# dmesg | grep net
[ 15.999659] audit: initializing netlink socket (disabled)
[ 27.512152] 8139cp: 10/100 PCI Ethernet driver v1.3 (Mar 22, 2004)
[ 30.725465] 8139too Fast Ethernet driver 0.9.28
root@james-desktop:/home/james#

You can see my fast ethernet driver and the 10/100 driver

What drivers are you showing for "dmesg | grep net"?

Hmm, that's weird. But we still don't know any details. Which livecd? Have you got an idea which motherboard? Those could be important because google shows that the e100 really should work with that NIC...

The ICH 7 family is a some what difficult one.
Mean it if you like a easy way out and if it is possibly in you,re case buy a ethernet card for a PCI slot
It cost me 10 Euros
Disable the onboard ethernet card in the BIOS settings , transfer you,re cable to the new ethernet card.
Load the driver for Windows the shop should provide you with Windows driver.
I myself use A Belkin ethernet card
The following distros find it perfectly Mepis , Fedora 8 and 9 opensuse 9,3 , 10.3 11, Mandriva 2008 , Vector
