I didn't notice this here, but maybe your setup is different. What type 
of connection do you have. DHCP? Try this, login as root and run 
"dhclient <device>", does that bring up a connection? Maybe something 
with networking is setup a bit different in 7-Stable, I'll take a closer 
look when I get back home if you haven't figured it out yet :)
