Well, it gives me the message:
e1000 device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization.
for the new ethernet device. What could this mean?
I'll try making a new wireless connection in the meantime.
EDIT: It seems I have multiple ethernet devices on this laptop. One can be accessed as an Ethernet device, one can be accessed as a Wireless device. The problem is that tey seem to be switched-up. What I'm assuming to be a wired ethernet device only works if I create it as a wireless device. I also just noticed that I can activate the wireless connection I just created only if my ethernet cable is plugged in. Otherwise it tells me that there is "no link present" and to check the cable. What's wrong with this crazy thing?!
