Network connection problem in unix

I have a network connection problem in unix. I am trying to access to LAN in unix but unfortunately it doesn't work. For example, if I ping from Unix to windows it says 'the network is unreacable'. Also, I can't ping in windows to unix.

I would be glad if someone could help me.

You're going to need to be root in order to set up these files.
