Check out the file /etc/network/interfaces , what are the contents ?

Give here the result of this command

cat /etc/network/interfaces

You can copy-paste above command to your terminal for more accuracy. You can open a terminal by pressing [Ctrl]+[Alt]+t keys combo.

Thanks

Hi ,

please open the file , with this command

1) gksudo gedit /etc/network/interfaces

and delete all the lines Except these two lines

Save the file and reboot.
