i corrupted my Xorg while experimenting on my system so I had to forcibly drop to Command Line.
However, my question is this - How do I connect to wired connection from the command line??

Hello I am unable to connect to the Internet using a wired connection. I was able to use the wired network yesterday. But I had problems with the flash player, so had to reinstall Ubuntu again. I am able to connect to Internet using wireless connection. But I need to connect to the wired connection. I am using Ubuntu 10.
i could do this simply with windows and using a program called virtual router. with ubuntu i am not sure if this is possible. i have a desktop that is hard wired to the wall and gets its on line connection from there. i also have a wireless card installed and working. i would like to be able to share the connection to be on line from the wired connection with other devices. please help thank you
I have a Lenovo G480 with AR8162 ethernet chipset. I am running Mint 17 but had similar problems with Ubuntu 14.04. If I enable the wired connection to connect on demand when the computer boots, it connects but then disconnectis and will not connect again. If I wait until the computer is boots, then enable the wired connection manually, it will connect and stay connected no problem.
After being away from Ubuntu for a year or so, I returned last night. I upgraded to 12.04 from 10.04. Now, my internet connection just cycles constantly, as if it continuously tries to connect wired, then wireless, then wired, then wireless... I am online (via a wired connection), but sometimes I will lose connection momentarily during one of the "cycles".
I just setup dual boot with Ubuntu 10.04 LTS on my Windows 7 machine. I can connect to the internet just fine when I boot to Windows; however, when I boot to Ubuntu I can't connect to the internet via a wired connection. I went into the console window and typed ifconfig -a to see if my Ethernet card was visible but it wasn't.
