John have you fixed up the /etc/network/interfaces file yet ?

At the very least, if you have, your existing ethernet adapter should be visible.

What is the output of
ip a

And
sudo dmesg | grep eth

John you need to pay attention, for some reason you seem to be missing some steps.

I said before, forum.linuxcnc.org/39-pncconf/45604-new-...athe?start=60#240906, you need to revert the /etc/network/interfaces file back to it original contents.

Now.
When you performed the ip a command and sudo dmesg | grep eth did you have your USB to LAN adapter plugged in ? It is helpful to have the adapter plugged in.

The hardware connection type will be an Ethernet connection.

I saw that link but surely reverting  will delete the connection to the mesa card .
Are we going back to square 1 ??
And I am reading that link to say delete all except the first two lines . Is that what is intended ??

Lan was connected via the usb adaptor  and all was powered up.

So what are the steps to create a new connection using the ethernet option.

Looks OK, so go back to the link i posted and follow that tutorial for setting up the IPV4 stuff.
BTW, there is only one network card on that PC.

It's not what he wants,

He wants the internal on board LAN for MESA and USB to LAN for his network.

The USB to LAN adapter is not showing up. For Mint you don't need to mess with the /etc/network/interfaces file. Don't touch it.

The OP is going to back to where he started.
Personally I think he needs to contact his local Linux Users group and ask if they can suggest someone to possibly come out on site to make a visit. It would appear he doesn't want to learn but just be given a tutorial.

Am not aware of any local linux users group up here so dont think there is a way forward there .
I do wish to learn,  but my priority is a working lathe, rather than becoming a linux expert . (probably too late for that)

Are you saying you cant take me forward  Allittleofftherails  ??

Surely there are a number of converted lathes running (with mesa cards) on Linux  with servo spindle drives .
Must be someone out there who has done it and can help.

There seems to poor prospects for progress unless I can get an internet connection. 
Will try the dongle to see if that is recognised . But if not then where do I go ?
Do I add another Ethernet connection internally??  PCI?   Will that be seen?

Information required after a reboot:

The IP addresses used by you home network, ie the address used by the router.
Whether or not the router gives out addresses

With the USB to LAN connector plugged in to a USB port the following
Output of:
sudo dmesg | grep eth
ip a
lsmod

This information will give an indication of whether the system is seeing the USB to LAN adapter and loading the required driver. Please note that this information is required and please do not take any shortcuts.

If you go the internal Network adapter you will need one that matches the available slot in your machine. You will need to open your machine to determine what it is. Remember that too the adapter will have to match the height of the existing card, ie if it is a low height or std height card.
For PCI cards I would look for a 2nd hand intel or 3Com based chipset and connect the MESA card to that.
