Trouble finding network-network not available

I have my eth0 nic set up, connected to a dsl modem, but when i cant ping external addresses or add to the routing table...wen i try route -add eth0, it tells me 'network not aavailable'...when i run ifconfig, it only shows the loopback address. It will appear if i run ifconfig -a, though. Any suggestions?

Is the module loaded for your NIC?
If its loaded then:
ifconfig eth0 up
