After some trouble networking with my Pi, I've just flashed my SD card with a fresh version of Raspbian 2014-01-07. It boots up fine but does not connect via ethernet to my network. The network lights are off.
Should a default Raspbian install automatically connect to the ethernet network, without any configuration, and should the network lights be flashing? (If so, I think I'll just have to buy a new one…)
I've connected it via a router/ADSL modem.
