    welcome! what about (the results from these):
    route -n
    lspci

    in ifconfig i'm missing the part with eth0
    I'm not sure what could be wrong though, maybe you can start your connexion with:
    ifup eth0
    (if you're on dialup) ifup ppp

    please also give some more info on your network, is there a router? modem? dailup? more computers on a lan?

    Mabye your NIC dosen't get recognized by your kernel if it dosen't show up in dmesg's output. If it is the case, you should try recompiling your kernel with your appropriate network interface drivers.
    If you manage to get your eth up (and your connection isn't a pppoe one) you should only run setup (being logged as root) and set your ip address, netmask, gateway and dns server's.
    Before trying to do something you should restart the internet daemon (service xinetd restart) and test you internet connection. Now it should work as expected if nothing went wrong.

    Yes, when I type dmesg, there is no NIC information. But How could I recompiling my kernel? Thank you!
    BTW, I connect to the campus network by cable. The machine is Dell XPS400.
