Can't connect to my wired internet connection

Postby wildonion on Sat Dec 01, 2012 10:02 pm


I just installed a copy of Linux Mint 14, and I seem to have lost my wired internet connection with it. I do, however, still have a wireless connection.

I'm wondering if anyone knows what may be the cause of the problem because I've encountered the same problem in the past with ubuntu OS's. I remember the problem with the ubuntu OS having to do with missing headers, but ultimately, is there anyway to prevent the problem from occuring? I can't understand why I only have this problem with linux OS's and not windows OS's.

Any help is appreciated.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Please show us the results of the following two commands

Code: Select all


Code: Select all
cat /etc/network/interfaces

Also, it may be helpful to know if you are running Cinnamon, MATE, or something else.
