Try, from the console as root, 'service network restart' That oughta

Check 'ifconfig eth0' to see that the address you think is eth0 actually

Ping eth0's IP. That oughta work, too.

Ping the DNS. If still net unreachable, the DNS server isn't on the same
network as eth0. Typo in resolv.conf?

If DNS pings, but the universe doesn't, the default route is likely bent
or non-existent. Does 'netstat -rn' show a route to If so, is
that route's gateway on the same net as eth0? If so, can that host
connect to the Internet?
