From the command line post the output of nm-tool
Can you ping your router, other sites?
Edit: My bad I thought you couldn't surf the net
Nm-tool will probably state that eth0 is activated, the reason is Network manager is controlling it.
if you right click on the try icon connection information it probably states Auto eth0.
If you dont want Network manager to control it you need to go to System>Administration>Network and uncheck the box controlled by network manager.
