    You could, alternatively install 12.10 and download and install linux-image-3.5.0-25 where your device is supported by default.

    Code:
    $ modinfo /lib/modules/3.5.0-25-generic/kernel/ubuntu/alx/alx.kofilename:       /lib/modules/3.5.0-25-generic/kernel/ubuntu/alx/alx.ko

    Hi chili555

    I took your advice and installed 12.10 and linux-image-3.5.0-25 , now I have no wireless mouse. Any ideas what I could have done wrong and how to correct the problem?

    Thank You

    I do not, although that isn't the first time I've heard it! You might search 'wireless mouse' and then ask here: http://ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=331

    May I assume you however do have ethernet??

    No luck there either.

    Re: Cannot connect to ethernet with wired connection

    Should I format and reinstall 12.04 64 bit? Has anyone been successful getting (12.04 or 12.10) 64 bit to run? Or is it just this ethernet card?

    What does this tell us?
    Code:
    sudo modprobe alx
    dmesg | grep alx
    modinfo alx 
    lspci -nn | grep 0200

    There are a lot of mouse problems with 12.10 64 bit, maybe I should format and go back to 12.04 where the mouse works? Will I be able to fix the connection problem with 12.04?

    Thank You

    By downloading a ton of prerequisites and compiling from source. I think it's far easier to find out what is not working with the mouse and fix it. By the way, my wireless mouse works fine in 12.10.

    You might try a live CD for 12.10; I worked on and solved a similar case where a fresh install worked when an upgrade didn't. You can get a terminal with Crtl+Alt+t.

    sudo modprobe alx
    FATAL: Module alx not found


    dmesg | grep alx
    nothing shows up here?



    modinfo alx
    ERROR: modinfo: could not find module alx

    Live CD for 12.10 will not boot, computer boots from hard drive when CD is in drive?
