It looks like this could be your problem.
Line 2 (iface lo inet dhcp) should be changed to:

iface lo inet loopback

You can do this, for example, by running the following command in a
terminal (creating a backup first):

sudo cp /etc/network/interfaces /etc/network/interfaces.bk
gksu gedit /etc/network/interfaces

Make the changes in Gedit, and then save and close. The you can run
somthing from a terminal like:

sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart

But I don't think that will save you - simply reboot the computer for
best results.

Let me know how this goes.
