eth0 confirms that the interface exists.

The interface is not UP and does not have an IP address information. How are you connecting to the internet ? Do you have to specify an IP address,netmask,default gateway in order to connect to the internet or is there is DHCP server/router which provides this information in the network ?

Try this,

ethtool eth0
At the very bottom of the output you should see Link Detected : yes. If not it's a cable problem.

Hi I made the entries for DHCP and tried ifdown eth0 and ifup eth0

it worked....
