Do you have a DHCP server in your network? And if yes, is it
configured to allocate address to your machine?

Else, you might want to try and assign a static IP address to it as
Shakthi pointed out to see if it works.

Btw, why do you have to configure the nameserver and the default
gateway? They are generally assigned by the DHCP server, if you have one.

Only people with names beginning with 'A' are getting mail this week (a la Microsoft)
