1. Check for link lights. Try a different network cable.
2. Do you have an ip address? What is the output of /sbin/ifconfig
3. Do you have a default gateway? What is the output of /sbin/route
4. What can you ping and where can you ping it from? try pinging, localhost, your internal ip, your router's internal ip, your external address, your friend, your isp, What works and what doesn't?
5. What the heck do you mean by shell? Maybe ssh or telnet? Is the daemon for such a service running? Are you sure?
6. Do you have a firewall blocking access to some port? Do you have the appropriate ports forwarded on your router if you need to?

Please try to construct complete, coherent, non run-on sentences in your response. Also attempt to include useful information, as it is very difficult to assess a problem without knowing what it is you are talking about.
