Your wired ethernet card is showing up and is called p2p1 but it has no ipv4 address, only an ipv6 link local one. I take it from your mention of wireless that it's not the connection you want... [by TrevorH]
I'm very confused about how to address a computer on my local network via ipv6. I am writing a server which is meant to support both ipv4 and ipv6. Now I have don an ifconfig and gotten my ipv4 local ip address, however I get inet6 addr: fe80::224:d7ff:fe3e:db44/64 Scope:Link for the ipv6. From what I have read I cannot use this to address the box on my local network right?
I installed 12.4 LTS on a Dell D520 with Broadcom 1390. No network connection, wired or wireless is recognized. No network is displayed for wired or wireless in network connection box. Both wired and wireless network connections worked under Windows XP before Ubuntu install. I verified ethernet cable connection with another computer. Did not do dual install - replaced XP.
The default Raspbian system for Raspberry Pi is set up to get an IP address automatically from the network via DHCP, whether for wired Ethernet or wireless WiFi (via a USB wireless dongle). Raspbian can support both IPv4 and IPv6. IPv4 is ready for use by default, and IPv6 must be enabled manually.
I just built a computer and freshly installed Ubuntu 14.04 on a new hdd but cannot connect to the internet when plugging in an ethernet cable. My computer doesn't have a wireless adapter so wireless isn't an option. I've tried going to "Edit connections" and adding a new Ethernet connection via the IPv4 Settings but haven't had any luck.
I'm setting up a Raspberry Pi as a proxy access point which accesses the internet via my USB tethered smartphone and is connected to my Windows PC via Ethernet. The internet works fine on the Pi, but I can't get my computer to connect to the Pi as it should. This is my computer's ipconfig when wired up to the Pi:
