Hi,

I've just bought a new laptop and installed Ubuntu 10.04 LTS on dual boot with Window$ 7.
I have no wired nor wireless internet connection with Ubuntu.

Laptop's technical support "can't" help me and there is no drivers to download on the constructor's website.

Here are the technical specificities:
laptop: ASUS K73SV-TY025V
network: Atheros AR8151 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.20)
802.11n Wireless LAN Card

Is there someone who can help me? I don't know very much in IT so please, be exhaustive O:)

By the way, here are the results of some bash commands ( that I've read in other discussions on this forum, but with no answer from the requested):

I know this is probably way too late, but I built a computer with the same ethernet controller and I also had a problem. What you need to do is get the AR81Family-linux-v1-1.0.1.14 driver and compile your kernel with it. The solution is in this thread:
