Thanks for that information. To create a script that will run those two commands automatically whenever your computer boots, type these commands:
No, just typing
sudo ifconfig eth0 up
didn't worked with the Network Manager applet - I still had to type
sudo dhclient eth0
to get the wired connection.
A file will open. Paste these lines into it:
Then save and close the file, and finish by typing:
ifconfig eth0 up
Now the commands that you need to get the ethernet working should be run automatically each time your computer boots. Let me know if you have trouble.
chmod +x eth0-up.sh
update-rc.d eth0-up.sh defaults
