It did not list the file name. AND I only had that message returned one time. I have entered the command numerous times since without getting "file exists".

If you get the file exists error then you can tryCode:
sudo dhclient eth0 -r

Jay and Elija:
I run ifconfig and get:
"eth0 Link encap: Ethernet HW addr 00:06:5b:47:a3:1b

Of course the "eth0" and the "lo" preceeding each are off to the left.

I tried the code. Still can't connect.

Can you ping an ip address outside of your network, for example google.com at 184.108.40.206. What are the results ofCode:

If your subnet is 255.255.255.0, then your broadcast address should be 192.168.0.255. I'll assume that you typed this by hand and typed it incorrectly?
If the router is handing out addresses, you can ping it, and you can access the Internet with other machines, then my suspicions are on the firewall. Please use the command 'iptables -L -v -n' as root and show us the results.

When i ping Google, I get "network is unreachable". Do I need to type anything prior to "cat /etc/resolv.conf" because i get "no such file or directory". As to the firewall, I disabled it in the router's settings (reached it successfully from the Windows machine) and still had no luck connecting.

Are you able to ping Googles' IP address?
sudo dpkg-reconfigure resolvconf
