interestingly, when i start System -> Preferences -> Network Connections i don't see any connections even though i'm connected. i did the steps described above (managed=true). i then get a "wired connection" in "Network Connections" called "ifupdown (eth0)" which i can't edit and it is set as "used: never"(?).
when i do "gksudo gedit /etc/network/interfaces" and edit it to
iface lo inet loopback
the connection is called "Auto eth0" "used: never".
if u want to run wired network you can do it with pppoeconf file. it will scan your port and then will ask ur username and password....... then read the instruction and ready to go for wired networking
