    And then what happens when you do:
    Code:
    sudo su
    make install
    modprobe atl1e
    exit
    Does it install and create an interface and connect and download torrents?

    Re: Atheros AR8151 ethernet not working

    I made an edit in my previous posting
    I didn't recognize that a second page appeared xD

    OH w0000t?!
    I ignored this echo of the terminal and continued with sudo make install and it worked ._.
    without the need of a restart ö_ö
    I'm heavily impressed of ubuntu
    thank you man

    but now I have one additional question:
    can you imagine why my sound is not working anymore when i plug in external speakers?

    and when i unplug them i can hear the system sounds again...

    That's an area outside my limited expertise. I suggest you ask on General Help.

    Glad your ethernet is working! Have fun.

    Hello guys

    I have the same problem and compile the ethernet driver correctly, but it does not work.

    Any other's who have the same ethernet solved the problem,could you show your method to this problem?

    Re: Atheros AR8151 ethernet not working

    When I install a fresh copy of ubuntu and install the Atheros Family drivers, all works perfectly. But when ubuntu is being updated (new kernel, from the updates) it doesn't work any more.

    I figured, I had to use 'modprobe' the driver into the kernel. But that doesn't seem to do anything. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Re: Atheros AR8151 ethernet not working

    I believe this is a correct statement:

    The module/driver has to be built against whatever version of the kernel you are currently running.

    That means that each time ubuntu downloads a new kernel update, you will need to rebuild and reinstall the module/driver

    So I just need to do the following? Because that doens't do anything.

    Code:
    sudo su
    make install
    modprobe atl1e
    


    I thought modprobe should be sufficient, because the atheros drivers is already installed, right? That will stay installed when you update a new kernel.

    The module from last kernels works fine.
