So I was running Ubuntu 12.10 until today I decided to upgrade since it is no longer supported. Now all of a sudden my Ethernet connection doesn't work and my computer is useless. In the top right corner of the screen the symbol looks as if the computer is searching for a wireless network. Also if it keeps telling me every couple of seconds that I was disconnected from the Internet and if I go to edit connected it always says the Ethernet was used just a couple of minutes ago. I'm not all that computer savvy so idk where to begin. Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks
Ifconfig gives me...damn I gotta type this by hand on a cell phone...

Ping -c 4 188.8.131.52 gives me...

And ping -c 4 Google.com reads...
Ping: Unknown host Google.com
And finally cat /etc/network/interfaces
