Connect to Network

How does one connect to the Internet from Netrunner Desktop 16.09? I use a wired connection between my NIC card, and my router. I am used to operating systems connecting via DHCP, but Desktop doesn’t connect. Netrunner Frontier 14 doesn’t have a problem, and connects just fine. Does anyone know what I need to do, to get Desktop connected to the network?

Is your network card listed as device in plasmas networkmanager widget (the network symbol in the tray next to the clock in the panel)

I got it connected, but ran into other problems. I’m going back to Frontier 14.
