you should try "ping www.google.com" or some IP for example 192.168.1.254
not the name of your PC, as Linux doesn't know your windows network names (you will need samba ...)
If the ping from IP 192.168.0.254 comes back ok, then it's OK.
and if ping www.google.com works, then it's even better.
maybe you could try:alter this file /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0,following this code"ONBOOT=no" to "ONBOOT=yes",then
ifdown eth0;ifup eth0,after this,run "ifconfig -a" just to check your eth0 is alive,i wonder if your eth0 is alive.

/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 can look like:
