There is no problem to connect to my wireless network, but when I want to change it to wired connection the manger can't find the connection.

There is green light in the socket when I connect the cable. So how can I fix this problem?

I am using ubuntu 10.04 netbook version and my computer is a HP mini 2140.

Thanks for any help :)

green light in the socket is not the problem...it shows that the connection is correct and is ready to comunicate with the modem type the following ccommand in your terminal

sudo restart network-manager

then type the password

also make sure your modem turned on and ready

  • First thanks for your help, I did what you say but after the manager finish restarting it once again connected to my wireless network instead of my wired one – assaf Apr 20 '12 at 14:13
  • @assaf You configured your wired connection? means added the wired connection in network-manager? – rjkrocks Apr 26 '12 at 16:53
  • No but I think that I don't need to because when I restart my computer every thing is fine – assaf Apr 27 '12 at 11:00
