Show us what ifconfig displays... If u're using a distro which hides/renames this command (RedHat?) then run that instead.

You might need to type the full path eg. /sbin/ifconfig

Do u use static IP or DHCP? And did u configure your network to use this protocol?

type dhcpcd -t 10 eth0 and see if that fixes it, if not do:
dmesg | grep eth
if that has no output then you network card does not identify on boot, tell us which it is
