Make sure that the "network" service is enabled.

/sbin/chkconfig --list network
You should see the following output:

network        	0:off	1:off	2:on	3:on	4:on	5:on	6:off
If you don't, that output, then you need to enable the service:
/sbin/chkconfig --level 345 network on
If the service is already configured, then you might wanna try either configuring the interface manually (i.e. editing /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0) or using a different GUI to set it up (i.e. if you're using network manager, try system-config-network and vise-versa).

I have done all that but still unable to solve the problem the output you have shown above is same like mine. I have also checked the services and their run-levels but all is ok. nothing is extraordinary in the *.conf files. The eth0 take the Dynamic IP and works properly with the DSL router. What is the problem now???
