Thanks bigrigdriver> The internet connection is still not active, however I think I'm a step closer to the solution.

So If I understand it correct, my notebook recognizes the ethernetcard and the drivers are installed, but the ethernetcard is not configured yet. That may also be the reason that there's no data available from the ethernetcard.
Quite weird, if I try to configure the ethernetcard, for example changing it's speed
- ethtool -s eth0 speed 100
Cannot et current device settings.
- ifstatus eth0
Network interface is managed from Networkmanager
eth0 is up
Can anybody help me out, probably I'm not thinking in the right way...
