I am new to Linux myself, so now I learned there is such file. 
I didn't look at this file, since I didn't know it exist, so I didn't ping
as well since I didn't know the address of the router.

Anyway - I am sure there is a DHCP working there, since I was told they
connected several Windows machines and they worked fine.

What I did is to look and make sure the "network tools" and to see that
Ethernet device was enabled and in DHCP automatic IP mode.

I am sure I missed something, since it didn't work. 

On the other hand, it did work at my home before I delivered them the PC.
Perhaps the installation process set something that match my home setting
and not that place? 

Can I run "re-installation" just for the network, something like a wizard?
