The link you provided with ftpmirror is not what you want. Really is for having all packages on a local computer which can be used by other computers. And is not needed and not recommended for normal usage of debian.

Before downloading another iso I would first try to get your box connect to the network. Somethings to try out:
ip link set up dev eth0
ip addr
ip addr
thanks for hely.... i downloaded 3 DVD ISO and installed it successfully.
Thanks again
