Hi all,
I haven't been using Ubuntu and Linux distro in general for a long time so I will cenrtanly submit a trivial issue. Already installed 10.04 on my new ThinkPad T420. After system updating everything but the wired connection seems going right. I report here the "lshw" and the content of "/etc/network/interfaces". Some suggestion on how to install eth card driver?
Thank you.

In 10.04 your device ID is not part of the module e1000e (checked it here). You may want to install the driver by hand:

http://thesorcerer.wordpress.com/2011/07/01/guide-intel-82573l-gigabit-ethernet-with-ubuntu-11-04-and-fix-pxe-e05/

Please use the long "sudo rm"-commands without "-rf" at the end. Copy/paste also works in the terminal.

Needed for installation:


sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic build-essential dkms

Use the newest driver available from that link and adjust the folder names.
