But it worked with another machine connected to that ethernet cable, right?
Yes. The router and cable are good.
That'll do it.
Time for a cheap NIC, try to make it an Intel one if you can.
Study those terminal commands we supplied you with, it's good to have an understanding of how they work in the event of another issue related to a NIC that isn't physically faulty.
I've got a D-Link DFE-520TX (for $4) installed. Ethernet is working great now. Yay.

To me, win 10 home 32 bit seems to run faster than 64bit pro version on old hardware.
Testing Lubuntu 17.10. I'm surprised at the ram usage.
Wow, that is amazing! That's like Raspbian ram usage.
Linux Mint 19 Mate with [H] loaded. Although the ram usage is higher than Lubuntu, it does feel snappier. Some kind of voodoo right there.
You have updates!
I assume that is a regular disc swap file/part...
May want to enable zswap with only 2gb.
What's the difference between zram and zswap?
Zram is a compressed swap device. (replacing your disc swap) Its basically a RAM swap drive.
Zswap is a compressed cache but doesn't replace your disc swap. Its an in kernel compression... basically it just means the system will compress some stuff it puts in ram and should better use your memory. It does come at the expense of a bit more CPU... but if your talking webpages ect that shouldn't be a big deal even on old or low end hardware. If you set it up the default is LZO compression which is the opposite of Zram which defaults to LZ4. All you really need to know is LZO is a better compression method, which makes it slower to compress and deflate. So in general I would suggest using LZ4 which takes less CPU but still provides almost as good a compression ratio. (which I would assume why the article I linked suggests turning on LZ4... if you skip that step Zswap will use the default LZO more compression at the cost of more CPU)
In general imo Zswap is superior. Chromebooks tend to ship with zram on... and If you really don't wanna hit the hard drive or slow ass flash storage in a chromebook if you can help it that makes sense. I would say in most cases zswap is the way to go. It can more intelligently handle page compression and will choose for instance to not compress stuff that doesn't compress well.
Correction to step 2... gksu and pluma dont exist anymore. xed admin:///etc/default/grub will do.
Added GeForce GT 440
What's the meaning of "Total dedicated memory"? Why is it less than 1024?
1024MB = 1GB. You have a 1GB card, of that 1GB you are using 44MB, so you have 963MB of video memory remaining.
I believe most NV cards also use a small bit of their ram to run their own onboard co-processors. NV cards have had their own "Fast Logic" or Falcon processor onboard for years.
A small bit of ram gets used by that I believe.
Replaced my 2x 1GB 6-6-6-12 ram with 2x 2GB 6-6-6-18 ram ($10 from AliExpress). Run systemd-analyze...
