    Re: wired connection does not work

    I haven't gotten comfortable w/ IPv6, but I notice wireless uses IPv4 addresses, and eth0 has no IPv4 address. You might check Network Manager settings for IPv4 on eth0...

    Is it set to "Connect Automatically" and "Available to all users"?
    Curiously, this machine calls the connection "Auto Ethernet" instead of "Auto eth0"...
