Thanks. Sorry had to leave last night.
Here is the result of my:

So the card is getting recognised properly, but the interface is not
coming up. But you knew that already.
I see that you have wireless (b43), does wifi work when you turn it on?
You previously posted:
When I switch to Ubuntu (or any other linux), only a steady green light
appears and no orange light and the OS shows the connection as inactive.
(Wireless is OK)
Can you try going back to the Network Manager (for testing)? Please log
out as root and do all of the following as the standard user (joe), not
as root. Modify /etc/network/interfaces to only these two lines:
iface lo inet loopback
Remove/comment out all the others. Open the network manager (NM) and
under the wired connection select 'Edit' and then select the 'IPv4
Settings': check 'Connect automatically' and 'Available to all users'.
Now set your connection to manual:
[Note: the latter is googles dns as a fallback in case 192.168.0.7 isn't
resolving - you can leave off if you wish]
Now click 'Apply'
Now go to the wireless tab. If there are any settings there delete them
(you can reset/modify later, but for now clear them all). Close the
network manager & reboot & log back in as your regular user (not root).
You could of course try resetting networking etc., but in this case just
After rebooting, click on the network manager let us know what you see.
Also open the terminal and provide the output of:
$ ifconfig -a
$ dmesg | grep eth
