Networking problems

I had my network up and running fine I could connect to the internet and everything. Turned off my computer and the next morning I came back to it and it wasn't on the network. It doesn't get the Ip address on start up. All my cables are fine and everything is plugged in properly. I ran netconfig and configured y network. What could be wrong?? and how might I fix it??

If you have another OS on some other partition you could try it to make sure it is not your ISP that's having a problem. I have no idea what other problem it could be given so little information. Please provide the output of this command
ifconfig eth0
You're using DHCP, isn't it?

is the driver automatically loaded during boot? after booting your system, you can check if the driver for your card is loaded using lsmod.
