Do you get any error messages when you do the ifdown/ifup,
the /etc/init.d/networking restart, and so forth? You must
get *something*, right? Normally when ifup returns nothing
at all, that means that you have a static IP address stored
in /etc/network/interfaces. So: could you send along the
contents of your /etc/network/interfaces?

If you have DHCP set up in /etc/network/interfaces, you
should get a few lines that look like so:

Internet Systems Consortium DHCP Client V3.0.1

DHCPDISCOVER on eth0 to port 67 interval 3

Please send along some error messages; we'll be able to help
you better then.
