    An excellent question, young Jedi! 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 <--or whichever version you compiled
    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.

    when i try it it cames:
    Code:

    [sudo] password for sebastian:

    build-essential ist schon die neueste Version.
    linux-headers-generic ist schon die neueste Version.
    Probieren Sie »apt-get -f install«, um dies zu korrigieren:
    Die folgenden Pakete haben unerfüllte Abhängigkeiten:
     g++-4.6 : Hängt ab von: gcc-4.6-base (= 4.6.3-10ubuntu1) aber 4.6.3-1ubuntu5 soll installiert werden
     gcc-4.6 : Hängt ab von: gcc-4.6-base (= 4.6.3-10ubuntu1) aber 4.6.3-1ubuntu5 soll installiert werden
               Hängt ab von: cpp-4.6 (= 4.6.3-10ubuntu1) aber 4.6.3-1ubuntu5 soll installiert werden
     libc6 : Hängt ab von: libc-bin (= 2.15-0ubuntu10.2) aber 2.15-0ubuntu20 soll installiert werden

    E: Unerfüllte Abhängigkeiten. Versuchen Sie »apt-get -f install« ohne Angabe eines Pakets (oder geben Sie eine Lösung an).
    and when i do ./scripts/driver-select alx

    Code:
    sebastian@sebastian-HP-Elite-7500-Series-MT:/media/sebastian/F042-8A1B/ubuntu/compat-wireless-3.6.8-1$ ./scripts/driver-select alx
    bash: ./scripts/driver-select: Permission denied
    sebastian@sebastian-HP-Elite-7500-Series-MT:/media/sebastian/F042-8A1B/ubuntu/compat-wireless-3.6.8-1$ sudo ./scripts/driver-select alx
    sudo: ./scripts/driver-select: command not found
    sebastian@sebastian-HP-Elite-7500-Series-MT:/media/sebastian/F042-8A1B/ubuntu/compat-wireless-3.6.8-1$ sudo -i
    root@sebastian-HP-Elite-7500-Series-MT:~# cd /media/sebastian/F042-8A1B/ubuntu/compat-wireless-3.6.8-1/
    root@sebastian-HP-Elite-7500-Series-MT:/media/sebastian/F042-8A1B/ubuntu/compat-wireless-3.6.8-1# ./scripts/driver-select alx
    -bash: ./scripts/driver-select: Permission denied
    when i install for examble gcc-4.6-base (= 4.6.3-10ubuntu1) it crys aobut other packages, that need 4.6.3-1ubuntu5

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

    I would try:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall build-essential
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall linux-headers-generic
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall linux-headers-`uname -r`
    Those backticks are on the left side of my US keyboard on the same key with ~.
    sebastian@sebastian-HP-Elite-7500-Series-MT:/media/sebastian/F042-8A1B/ubuntu/compat-wireless-3.6.8-1$ ./scripts/driver-select alx
    bash: ./scripts/driver-select: Permission denied
    It looks like you are trying to install off of a CD, DVD or similar. They are read-only. Please drag and drop the compat-wireless package to your desktop and then do:
    Code:
    cd ~/Desktop/compat-wireless-3.6.8-1
    ./scripts/driver-select alx
    make
    sudo make install
    sudo modprobe alx

    It would help us to know what the errors are.

    Do you have the exact same ethernet device? Please open a terminal and run and post:
    Code:
    lspci -nn | grep 0200

    You have a whole different device and we needn't clog up this thread, but try this:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe r8169
    Does your ethernet come to life? If so, please do:
    Code:
    sudo su
    echo r8169 >> /etc/modules
    exit
    If that doesn't solve it, please start your own new thread.
