It looks issue with the network adapter. I had seen recently my friend facing a issue with network adapter. He tried all configuration manually but still the lan thing stuck on acquiring network address. At last he showed the laptop to a service center who confirmed that the lan port is damaged. There are certain number of test that you can try. Like checking different cables, connecting on a different network, etc. If this works then the lan port is fine, the issue lies with the settings.
