Hai,

Can you try the "ping localhost" or ping 127.0.0.1

If u have getting some response from this your network card is working...then u have to check for the configuration.For this you have to type the command"netconfig" in the cli mode or "neat" in the graphics mode.....

try for this......

if u can't ping 127.0.0.1 that means that ur ethernet card is not supported
or it is not connected properly. try netconfig from a terminal window or kudzu for the hardware detection

Actually, localhost 127.0.0.1 is an internal loopback device and is not related to the ethernet card not working.

Post the output of /sbin/ifconfig

What is the configuration of your network? link beat not connected means your network card does not appear to be connected to anything.
