    Question New mb - no network inferface detected

    So I just bought a new computer, with an Asus F2A95-V motherboard. Installed Ubuntu Server on the machine, and it could'nt detect any network interface hardware. I have no idea how to get the drivers, and install from the terminal (as I have no desktop).

    Help appreciated!!

    lspci shows that a driver is loaded for the network hardware.

    Ethernet controller: Atheros COmmunications Inc. AR8161 Gigabit Ethernet (rev 10)

    Under the network detection while installing Ubuntu, it detected nothing :/

    Tried downloading and installing the linux-backports-modules-cw-3.4-precise-generic , and then using the modprobe alx command. It shows that the alx module is not found (might be for wireless connections).
    Any suggestions for an solution? I'm struggling to get this to work.
    It's an ASUS F2A85-V motherboard.

    We need more information:
    Code:
    lspci -nn | grep 0200
    lsb_release -a
    You are on the right track, I suspect.

    Your device is covered in linux-backports-modules-cw-3.4-precise-generic. Let's try to see what went wrong:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall linux-backports-modules-cw-3.4-precise-generic
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall linux-backports-modules-cw-3.4-`uname -r`
    Those tickmarks are on the left side of my US keyboard on the same key with ~.
    Code:
    sudo modprobe alx
    Please note and post any errors or warnings.
