Networking - Ethernet (HP Elitebook 2740p)

This connected variably and mysteriously. Right-clicking on the interface icon (`setup networking') in the bottom-right of the screen didn't work and then clicking `eth0' did not work. However, the `connect' icon on the screen `Simple Network Setup' did work, I have no idea why. It is possible to use the commands `ifconfig eth0 up' on the command line, but `ifup eth0' did not work. DHCP was not being called. There is also an `Internet Connection Wizard' available from the menu.
