Network node cannot ping a site on Internet

I set the network interfaces of my network node follow the doc on eth0 used for external network, the IP address is allocated by the lab's admin, it is fixed. When I change the /etc/network/interfaces to

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet manual
    up ip link set dev $IFACE up
    down ip link set dev $IFACE down

and reboot I cannot ping the WHY? Because this configuration is used for DHCP situation? What should I do to make it can connect the Internet?
