I am new to Linux and after becoming sick of windows 10 and doing some research decided to try and use elementary OS. I installed elementary OS on my desktop but for the life of me after nearly 24 hrs of messing with this cannot get internet or a connection to my network. It is a wired connection. It is getting very frustrating and is not giving a good first impression of Linux for sure.
I don't know if you need to know my hardware or not but I have a Gigabyte 990FXA-UD7 motherboard using on-board Realtek PCIe GBE family network controller.
I am about to my wits end with this.
