I have installed Linux Mint. I got it to load up and everything was working the first couple days until i had to restart the system. It is dual booted w/ windows 7. When I boot in to Linux Mint it does not connect to the wired network. Without doing anything, I can restart in to windows and connect to the internet. I downloaded wicd (Found a web saying to use it) but I cannot figure out what I am doing wrong and why it wont connect to the internet. I am up for anything or any guides, tips etc on how to get it connected. I would make the switch 100% if I could get it to stay online after a reboot.
I am using a dell xps from a couple years back. It has an intel ethernet card in it (at work so dont have the exact model).
