I'm brand new to Linux so I thought I'd give it a shot for my gaming pc I just built, however it says the wired connection is not connected.

When it is I really can't give out the terminal info Because it won't connect however when I ping my IP address in terminal it says unreachable and I’ve tried a couple of other things so yeah can someone please help.

I'm just debating on getting a wireless card but I'm not sure I'll have the same problems so if you can help thanks.

Edit fixes code tags

I'm so sorry to waste your time @meccooll it was the cable I swapped it and now it is working – user295141 Jun 24 '14 at 3:50

Not hearing anything on the link (not receiving any packets) troubleshoot hardware, cables, router, network card...
