EDIT: PROBLEM IS BACK..
I cant figure out a permanent and reliable way around the bug (have managed the bug to go away 2 times) my files keep duplicating themselves with a ~ after their name, so if I modify rc.local, a file named rc.local~ pops out of nowhere, I dont understand what this does.
Also I dont have a /etc/init/module-init-tools.conf file, Im modifying the script in kmod.conf…
Help is appreciated.
EDIT: Problem solved thanks to https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1003297
I installed Ubuntu 14.04 LTS alongside Windows 7, my ethernet connection works without problem in Windows but it doesn’t work in Ubuntu. I think the problem is related to drivers and doesn’t allow me to aquire/assign an ip adress. Thank you for trying to help, Ill describe the problem ahead.
My wifi connection does work without problems.
When I desable my wifi: my network manager tries to connect using the wired connection 1 and it always returns "Disconnected – you are now offline", and then it tries to connect again and the cycle repeats (Disconnected – yo are now offline).

About my ethernet controller: I dont understand much but here is the info I got:
~$ sudo lshw -class bridge

Finally I managed to get a script that diagnoses your connections, here is the output when my wifi is off and Im trying to connect trough my ethernet:
