If this is Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, it's normal that there is no ifconfig. Run ip address instead.
As to the failing ping: Your error indicates only that name resolution doesn't work. You may actually have internet access. A few simple checks:
can you ping
can you ping an ip address in your local network?
is you basic network configuration correct (ip address, ip route commands)?
Is the system physically connected?

Use a network troubleshooting guide such as There are too many possible problems to cover in a forum thread.
