Do you have an eth#-Adapter? Can you edit your posting and add the output of ifconfig? –  Michael K Jan 11 '12 at 9:53
see edited question: i have added the output from ifconfig –  KMC Jan 12 '12 at 10:11
ifconfig -a would be more useful –  tumbleweed Jan 12 '12 at 10:33
see edited question. I add the ifconfig -a. –  KMC Jan 13 '12 at 2:41
