This contains a lot of unused variables and wrong information. However, it 
looks like you are using a static IP - so why not run the "net-setup" script 
and save the ifconfig.eth0 and resolv.conf files it produces? Also, you need 
to delete /etc/udev/rules.d/76-network.rules.

If this doesn't help, please post the output of the following commands from 
your known-working system:

ip addr list
ip route list
