On a newly installed Ubuntu 14.04 Machine which is connected to the LAN, I cannot connect to the internet and keep receiving the command: "Disconnected. You are now offline". This is a while on the same machine using Windows 10, I am connected to the internet so there should not be something wrong with my network card. I have tried this option:

sudo service network-manager restart

However the problem persists and I cannot connect to the internet. How can I resolve this problem?

    Click the network applet in the indicator bar and make sure that networking is enabled. Then click on Ethernet to connect through the LAN. Also, click on Edit Connections and edit Wired connection, then make sure that in the General tab Connect automatically ... is enabled. Note that some of the device names may differ on your system. – AFH Jan 26 '16 at 14:30
  • You may need to update your LAN drivers in Ubuntu... – Kinnectus Jan 26 '16 at 15:43
