    Kubuntu on Alienware 14 no eithernet recognized

    Hello All,

    I just bought an Alienware laptop and repartitioned for kubuntu. The first thing I noticed that the eithernet card is not working.

    lshw shows :
    network UNCLAIMED
    description: Eithernet controller
    product: Atheros Communications Inc
    ifconfig -a shows:
    lo
    wlan0
    lspci
    Atheros Communications Inc Device e091 (rev 10)
    I thought everything would work out of the box. Do I need to install the driver?

    OK will do. I am only going to post the eithernet part because I have to retype the output to another computer that has internet access.

    lspci -nnk

    Thanks in advance

    Suggest you get a brew and put on a tin foil hat

    The issue is not wifi. Wireless works out of the box. The issue is the ethernet (No eth0 showing up in ifconfig). I switched cables with another computer and still no joy. I booted in windows 7 and there is no problem. The issue is with Kubuntu 12.04. I am a bit stumped in this.
