To reply to oneBuck's question my output for ifconfig -a is listed beneath and my /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist file is now empty.
Something interesting I noticed is that eth0 shows up when I run ifconfig -a but not just ifconfig.

burninGpi I ran the code you seggested - here is the output
Code:
yoshi@yoshi-laptop:~$ sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/wl.conf

I just now tried wicd and my ethernet device now works -I am able to connect via wired and wireless- thank you so much everyone for your help, I could not have possibly done this on my own.
Much obliged.

Hi,

Quote:
excerpt from 'man ifconfig';

OPTIONS
-a display all interfaces which are currently available, even if down
'man ifconfig' will get you more information.
