ether connection with arduino uno is failing

hi,

i am using ETHERNET W5100 shield with Arduino UNO,
the code i am using is

< /*
Web client

This sketch connects to a website (http://www.google.com)
using an Arduino Wiznet Ethernet shield.

Circuit:

  • Ethernet shield attached to pins 10, 11, 12, 13

// Enter a MAC address for your controller below.
// Newer Ethernet shields have a MAC address printed on a sticker on the shield
byte mac = { 0xDC, 0x4A, 0x3E, 0x19, 0x9C, 0xED };

// if you don’t want to use DNS (and reduce your sketch size)
// use the numeric IP instead of the name for the server:
//IPAddress server(74,125,232,128); // numeric IP for Google (no DNS)
char server = “www.google.com”; // name address for Google (using DNS)

// Set the static IP address to use if the DHCP fails to assign
IPAddress ip(192, 168, 1, 10);

// with the IP address and port of the server

the error i am getting is:
Initialize Ethernet with DHCP:
Failed to configure Ethernet using DHCP
connecting to www.google.com
connection failed

disconnecting.
Received 0 bytes in 0.0000, rate = 0.00 kbytes/second

can somebody help me…

  if (Ethernet.begin(mac) == 0) {
    Serial.println("Failed to configure Ethernet using DHCP");

If you can't connect using DHCP, print a message, and

    // try to congifure using IP address instead of DHCP:
    Ethernet.begin(mac, ip, myDns);

just assume that that works.

Why are you, after all the poorly formatted, check every possible failure cause, now assuming that this will work?

What is the other end of the ethernet cable connected to?
