Did you try rebooting?

There isn't nearly enough information here.  What type of network card (NIC) do you have?  What type of internet connection?  I'm assuming ethernet but are you connecting to a DSL router, a cable modem, a local area network, or what?

Please post the output of the following commands (run as root) in a terminal window:

/sbin/ifconfig -a


With sufficient information we can figure this out for you.
