NIC in the laptop is certainly being detected.

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.
