Network node cannot ping a site on Internet

I set the network interfaces of my network node follow the doc on openstack.org 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 openstack.org WHY? Because this configuration is used for DHCP situation? What should I do to make it can connect the Internet?
