when i do "gksudo gedit /etc/network/interfaces" and edit it to
auto lo
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
