    Not able to setup wired network 13.4

    I have tried all evening to setup Ubuntu 13.4 using a wired connection through a D-Link router, it seems none of the setup interfaces work, the save tab never comes alive after typing in all the information it should need. There is so much different information on the internet with these versions changes it just becomes a useless task. I know all the information I need to place in the proper place but I can't tell if the system is seeing the network card or not, I think it does, it is embedded on the mother board and at least 4 years old hardware wise. Is there any good information specifically on this version 13.4 preferably with some graphical illustration simply because I don't know what should even be showing.

    Thanks

    13.04 has only a few months left of support so better to let this one pass.
    How does 13.10 work in a live boot?

    Please also give a complete hardware description.

    Thank you, I apologize, it is indeed 13.10!, too many numbers in too short of time... I have managed to connect, my router D-Link DIR/615 actually had DHCP turned off since I use static IPs on my two other machines. I'm quite happy with Ubuntu using automatic and plan only to use it with wine and experiment with some older things I would like to run and not have to tie up a machine with an older system 'windows'. I did try the image on a USB stick of this release but it was for repairing my windows machines and moving tons of files I needed to save. Thanks again and now I will start gathering some software to run.
