Have you plugged the wire in at both ends?

If yes I suggest you are not getting dhcp request accepted so do this :

$ sudo nano /etc/dhcp/debug

change RUN="no" to RUN="yes" then try to connect again on the Network Manager icon in the system tray. If it fails then read the output of /tmp/dhclient-script.debug

Good Luck

bakata: you have both wired and a wireless network cards. which one are you trying to connect with? The ifconfig output looks like your wireless is already connected, but not the wired. Is this correct? If you are trying to switch from wireless to wired, please say exactly what you are doing to make the switch.
