How to create a wired network connection on Ubuntu MATE 18.04?

Help me to create a wired network connection!

Recently I've been trying to connect a cable between the router and my notebook but it doesn't recognize the connection. Please, help me to do this trick.

It should just connect automatically. You shouldn't actually need to do anything. The fact is is not connecting suggests that, maybe, your on-board ethernet port is not being recognized by UM.

The next step would be to Install "hardinfo".

sudo apt-get install hardinfo

It is like MS Windows' old "System" window where it lists all of your on-board devices. Even ones for which you do not currently have a driver. On there, you should be able to see if your ethernet is being recognized and if there is a driver installed. It'll probably be listed under the sub-heading of "PCI devices".

Hardinfo is listed in your menu as "System Profiler and Benchmark". You should find it under "tools" or "system" following installation.

Thanks for your help, but I still don't get how to manage the connection correctly.
Maybe I have to learn more about networking.

My thanks!

Thanks for your help!
The problem is that I don't know how to configurate it.

I have to learn more about networking.

The most common scenario is just to create and save connection using autoconfiguration option like this:

Did you ever get your wired connection to function with your PC?
