I recently went to India and over there I had to configure my laptop to use Broadband internet. So I followed a guide similar to this one. Everything worked fine and I was able to get online, however, when I came back to states my ethernet connection does not work anymore. When I simply plug-in the ethernet cable, the light blinks but nothing happens on the laptop. My wireless still works.

Is there a way to reset my ethernet settings back as they were when I first installed ubuntu so that everything works as desired?

Here are the screen-by-screen settings for a default ethernet connection. If you see something different (other than the MAC address), consider changing it.

If you click the Routes button on the IPv4 screen, it should be empty like so:
