As with any driver or module that's compiled from source code, it was compiled against your running kernel version only. When you get updates and get a newer kernel version, also known as linux-image, you will need to recompile:
cd Desktop/compat-wireless-3.5.1-1-snpc
make clean
./scripts/driver-select alx
sudo make install
sudo modprobe alx
You might copy these instructions to your desktop so you'll recall when the time comes.

The alx driver is a new arrival and you've worked out a successful install. So the searchers can find the fix, please use thread tools at the top and mark Solved.
I make note of your remarks concerning a newer kernel. Again, many thanks!
