    Can you provide the output of:

    Code:
    route -n
    There is no route to that network, hence the message. Either you cannot reach your gateway, or your gateway cannot get out.

    Are you running any firewalls on the linux box?
    Can you ping the gateway?

    There are many reasons that this could be happening. If you cannot even ping your gateway, then either your gateway IP is wrong, the gateway is down, or your NIC is not working.

    Have you tried to ping your machine from the gateway?

    Can you give us a network map of how things are connected. Would help a lot to figure out where the problem might be.

    Also check the cables to ensure they are properly connected at both ends.
