I currently only have wired internet via a cable modem connected to an Airlink 101 ASW105 switch. It works fine for my wife's mac. However, my laptop does not connect; I've tried connecting via eth0 and tried creating a new wired connection- but both fail to connect.
It's not a hardware problem with my cables or the network hardware, as my wife's machine has been used to test all cables and ports etc, other than that of my laptop.
So, how can I go about connecting to this network via commands on the terminal?
If you need more information please fire away.
Edit: I added some more info based on the comments. I have only added the Wired devices comments for nm-tool.
