But how to do this differs between distros.
So tell us your distro (Eg Ubuntu 11.04, Fedora ... Etc)

Have a look in your menu to see if you can find a tool to configure services. This enables you to cancel unnecessary daemons (like a battery monitor on a desktop) and select those you need, like "networking" or "network manager".

Hi there,

Welcome to LQ!!

As I can understand your network card is not getting active automatically at the time of boot.

You can do the following:

1. Once you login to GUI at the top you will find System menu.
2. Click on that and navigate to Preferences | Network Connections.

There you will find option to automatically activate your ethernet connection at startup.
