    As with any driver or module that's compiled from source code, it was compiled against your running kernel version only. When you get updates and get a newer kernel version, also known as linux-image, you will need to recompile:
    Code:
    cd Desktop/compat-wireless-3.5.1-1-snpc
    make clean
    ./scripts/driver-select alx
    make
    sudo make install
    sudo modprobe alx
    You might copy these instructions to your desktop so you'll recall when the time comes.

    The alx driver is a new arrival and you've worked out a successful install. So the searchers can find the fix, please use thread tools at the top and mark Solved.
    I make note of your remarks concerning a newer kernel. Again, many thanks!

    similar atheros ar8162
    Similar?? Let's have a look:
    Code:
    lspci -nn | grep 0200
    sudo modprobe alx
    dmesg | grep alx
    no wifi
    This is an ethernet device, not wifi.

    then i found this http://askubuntu.com/questions/15722...atheros-ar8162 and downloaded compat-wireless-2012-09-01-pc.tar.bz2 file...then it worked. may be you can tell about my problem, so that it might help others. but this is really frustrating when you cant access internet due to driver issue. i am lucky that i have another machine beside.

    Hmmm. There was a reason that I did:
    My long delay in responding was because I was working out how and where to get it working.
    And therefor there was a reason I did:
    compat-wireless-3.5.1-1-snpc
    ...because it works.

    If you want to get your wireless going, I suggest you start a new thread. This thread refers to Atheros ethernet and the driver alx.

    Re: Lenovo G480 / Atheros AR8162 woes: unable to initiate wired/dsl

    Chili555, thank you very much for the steps to enable ethernet on ubuntu.

    I had to do the below before "sudo make install" in addition:
    "
    sudo mv /usr/sbin/update-grub ~/ug.bk; sudo touch /usr/sin/update-grub; sudo chmod a+x /usr/sbin/update-grub;
    "
    in order to bypass grub update. My live kubuntu 12 uses syslinux boot manager and not grub.

    I do not know the long-term consequences of moving update-grub yet.
