I have a dual boot machine. When I am in windows both my wired and wireless connections work, I prefer to use my wired connection on this particular machine.
When I boot into ubuntu 12.10 I am unable to connect using my wired connection.
My wireless works fine. However, the wired connection does not work at all. It times out trying to connect every time.
