I don't want to sound ungrateful, but I made it clear in my first post 
that it didn't just work out of the box like that. You all seem to 
assume I haven't even attempted to configure it, but if you read my 
first message, I state that I have attempted to connect in the 
straighforward way already, and also attempted to use the Network  
Connections panel in the computer (which presumably follows a familiar 
Ubuntu layout) but I see no Ethernet option there.
