I cannot see "Wired" under All Settings-->Network in LinuxMint 13 with Cinnamon on my friend's computer. Wireless works just fine, and when I click the "+" symbol, it only let's me add a proxy.
When I type sudo ifconfig, I only see "lo" and not "eth0".
His wired ethernet used to work, but now does not at all. Any ideas at all?
For what it's worth, I looked in BIOS and his wireless NIC is enabled. Also, I compared his laptop with Mint 13 to mine which works with wireless, and we can't seem to find any problems. I restarted his computer and the cable modem several times so luck there.
Basically, seeing no sign of a Ethernet card in the linuxmint software, but two LEDs light up physically on the ethernet port: red on the left and orange on the right.
On my laptop: flashing orange on the left and green on the right
