    I don't know what else to say aside from what I said in post #12. I'm just the wrong guy to ask about USB mouse. All I know is that I run 3.5.0-25, my USB mouse works and the kernel includes alx.

    Is the soft block fixed? Does the wireless work now?

    I don't quite understand the wireless at the neighbors or the 'base' is on your wife's Mac. Do you have any wireless capability at all, no matter where?
    So....I don't have home access to wifi...I do have LAn at home....through my wife#s MAc..which works perfetcly on my linux box (12.04). But I have a new laptop. It has wifi capability - but, as I said, I don't have wifi at home. I've tried installing 12.10 on the ASUS X55A, but without LAN I can't update anything, so I can't install the drivers for the atheros 1861 ethernet.
    I've tried using the method in your post but I keep getting dependencies missing.

    Perhaps the best thing I can do is find someehre where I can use wifi and try to update and install the driver from there. What's the driver called and where can I find it, please?

    It will be much easier. All you need to do is start Update Manager and let it install all the available updates. One will be linux-image-3.5.0-25 which includes your ethernet driver alx by default. Thank the coffee shop and reboot and your ethernet should be working.

    Re: Cannot connect to ethernet with wired connection

    Hi chili555

    Maybe I should buy a wireless receiver for this computer, then maybe I can connect to the wireless in my house? Or maybe I should reinstall 12.10 64 bit without linux-image to 3.5.0-25, would that help? I would have use of the mouse then and I could try a different approach?

    Or borrow one from a friend.

    -24 also includes alx. Of course, with a temporary wireless connection, you could download the prerequisites and compile alx from source. Easily and quickly, like ten minutes. You could also, in one minute, install linux-backports-modules-cw.

    Hi chili555

    I reinstalled 12.10 and ran this in terminal. I also got a D-Link Xtreme N Dual Band USB Adapter that I want to install, but not having much luck.

    Yikes! A device with no native Linux driver that must be compiled from source. It's just as complex to get going as your ethernet. I'd return it.
