When you get the "connected to" popup, don't delete it -- that is your network connection. The specification of eth0 merely indicates the first "wired" network, as opposed to wlan0 which would indicate the first wireless network.

Sorry ... don't have a solution. Suggest you visit the Networking subforum. They have some pinned posts dealing with networking problems.

can you post the output of the terminal commands
lshw -C network
Note that you can make the output into a file by doing for example
ifconfig > ifconfig.txt
this will put the output into a file called ifconfig.txt in your home directory.
