[Discuss] network issue

just intalled ubuntu 13.10 on a new disk (old one crapped
out) in panasonic cf-50 computer.  everything seems fine
except the i can't seem to get the network to come up.

the ethernet port is hard wired into the router, which
connects fine to all my other wireless computers.  going to
the little blank antenna pattern sector icon on the task
bar, i set up the mac address for eth0 and save, but nothing
happens.  sudo ifconfig eth0 up produces the little icon
sector rings, and i then get into the local net, the router,
my local net website, etc, but can't get out.

route is blank, so i add the router address as the default.
resolv.conf is blank (except for the comment) so i add, which is what shows up on this computer which
works, but that doesn't help either.

i'm obviously missing something fundamental -- any help will
be appreciated.
