My computer doesn't seem to detect that a port exists. Screenshots: It is clear that the Ethernet cable works with the access point - it works for Xbox and another PC. I need to get Ethernet to work, although wi-fi does. EDIT: I am using GNOME, don't know if that impacts anything

Welcome to ask.fedora! Linux hasn't used eth0 or eth1 for several years. (My wired connection is enp0s25.) Try opening up Network Connections, under Settings, and see what it says.

ifconfig will list all interfaces with their names.

You could see all interfaces with ip address command on the terminal. But if you do not seen any, try lspci |grep Net to see which device you have and help you properly.

A NIC is a Network Interface Card, and it's what you plug your network cable into.

I don't understand. I have no idea what to do with the information, and I don't know what my NIC name is EDIT: Hence, I am a computer noob
