comment static ip issue
Well I'm coming to a point where I don't care how I get to the solution, as long as it works. I would have preferred a command line solution for many reasons, one of which is that it's easy to reproduce elsewhere. But if you find me a solution using the network manager, I'll take it ! I am indeed using a GUI, and I actually also tried the network manager way right now, and I still don't have an internet connection.

Ok sorry for not understanding. I commented out the lines relative to eth1. The problem still remains. However when I did sudo /etc/init.d/network restart to apply the changes, a message (which had appeared before under similar circumstances by the way, but I had forgotten to mention it) said: ignoring unknown interface: eth0=eth0.

@elmicha your answer makes sense. What is a 'line' exactly, and how do I disable it ?

@belacqua I can't even get back to solid grounds, as stated in a comment to your answer.

Ok so I found out I'm on eth0 right now, thanks to dmesg.

yeah that's the sad thing it appears I can't even get back to a known good configuration. As stated above in my comment, the link light is amber. dmesg actually told me something: the link I am right now is eth0. If I unplug and plug back my wire, I get a dmesg that says r8169 0000:0a:00.0: eth0: link down (and then link up)

@belacqua what is a 'link light' ? How would I proceed to be sure which interface my ethernet wire is plugged into ?

@elmicha Yes I guess so, although I have switched from one interface to the other multiple times so I guess this could be from a previous setup. I'm not doing anything anymore now and waiting for your instructions, I'm tired of trying to fix it and making it even worse.

@F.S. yes I know that but it's not the same computer (obviously, since I am talking about lack of internet connection) and I don't have a shared medium to transfer that file.
