1. Post here the output:


If it shows eth0 link as OK
Then perform the following:

2. The /etc/network/interfaces must include:
iface eth0 inet dhcp
if dhcp has to be configured

For static IP:

auto lo eth0
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet static
address your ip here)
gateway gateway ip here)

Hope it helps !!!
