    Re: Atheros AR8151 ethernet not working

    The only possible relevant items I find in BIOS are :
    under the heading Main- Network Boot [Enabled]
    under the heading Boot Priority-
    1. IDEO: ST9250315AS
    2. Network Boot : Atheros Boot Agent
    3: USB
    4. etc.........
    5. etc...........
    Nothing indicates if the Atheros Boot Agent is on or off.

    Re: Atheros AR8151 ethernet not working

    TXbirder, you're killing me! I saw this: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=88466
    I was able to get eth0 to show up, and get my wired connection working. I think the problem was, in the BIOS, I had bluetooth disabled. Even though my ethernet was enabled, that small bluetooth change did the trick.
    You might check that although I think the possibility is slight.
    under the heading Boot Priority-
    1. IDEO: ST9250315AS
    2. Network Boot : Atheros Boot Agent
    3: USB
    4. etc.........
    5. etc...........
    Nothing indicates if the Atheros Boot Agent is on or off.
    Can you highlight Atheros Boot Agent and press Enter? Are there other possibilities?

    Let's do a full diagnostic look-see. Please reboot so that we have a clean slate and do:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe atl1c > birder.txt
    dmesg >> birder.txt
    lsmod >> birder.txt
    modinfo atl1c >> birder.txt
    zip birder.zip birder.txt
    You will find the file birder.zip in your user directory. Please attach it to your reply using the paperclip tool at the top of the reply box. Thanks.

    john@john-laptop:~$ sudo modprobe atl1c > birder.txt
    john@john-laptop:~$ dmesg >> birder.txt
    john@john-laptop:~$ lsmod >> birder.txt
    john@john-laptop:~$ modinfo atl1c >> birder.txt
    john@john-laptop:~$ zip birder.zip birder.txt
    updating: birder.txt (deflated 74%)
    john@john-laptop:~$

    Before I can find birder.zip I must figure out where "user directory" is.

    I must figure out where "user directory" is.
    It is /home/john-laptop. If you are using the latest version of Ubuntu, click Home Folder or if an earlier version, Places > Home Folder.

    Re: Atheros AR8151 ethernet not working

    You have this device:
    john@john-laptop:~$ lspci -nn | grep 0200
    01:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Atheros Communications AR8151 v1.0 Gigabit Ethernet [1969:1073] (rev c0)
    Your version of atl1c, it's driver, is:
    filename: /lib/modules/2.6.32-33-generic/kernel/drivers/net/atl1c/atl1c.ko
    version: 1.0.0.1-NAPI
    license: GPL

    author: Jie Yang <jie.yang@atheros.com>

    depends:
    vermagic: 2.6.32-33-generic SMP mod_unload modversions
    Notice that your pci.id 1969:1073 is not listed. Also, the driver version is kernel/drivers/net. I just compiled atl1c from the compat-wireless package and here is what I got:
    $ modinfo atl1c
    filename: /lib/modules/2.6.38-10-generic/updates/drivers/net/atl1c/atl1c.ko

    depends:
    vermagic: 2.6.38-10-generic SMP mod_unload modversions 686
    Notice, also, that the compat-wireless driver installed in updates/drivers/net.

    I believe that the compile did not go perfectly. Let's try again. Please do:
    Code:
    cd Desktop/compat 
    ./scripts/driver-select restore 
    ./scripts/driver-select atl1c
    make
    sudo make install
    modinfo atl1c
    Now does the driver list your device 1969:1073? Did it install in updates/drivers/net? If so, your ethernet should now finally be working.

    Now run:

    sudo make btunload to unload bluetooth modules

    Run sudo modprobe driver-name to load your desired driver.
    If unsure reboot.

    I REBOOTED AND NOW THE ETHERNET WORKS! THANK YOU FOR YOUR AMAZING PATIENCE.
    What, if anything, should I do about these:

    sudo make unload to unload all: wireless, bluetooth and ethernet modules
    sudo make wlunload to unload wireless modules
    sudo make btunload to unload bluetooth modules

    Nothing. You rebooted and you're all set. I'm very glad it's working.

    Please make a note for the future. Whenever a newer kernel version, or linux-image as it's known in Ubuntu, is installed by Update Manager, you'll need to build this driver for the later kernel:
    Code:
    cd Desktop/compat
    ./scripts/driver-select restore 
    ./scripts/driver-select atl1c
    make
    sudo make install
    modinfo atl1c
    Later versions of Ubuntu, 11.04, for example, have this built in.

    Have fun!

    Re: Atheros AR8151 ethernet not working

    I'm hoping that someone can help me a little further with this issue. This solution in #6 works:

    Code:
    mkdir AR81Family
    mv AR81Family-Linux-v1.0.1.9.tar.gz AR81Family
    cd AR81Family
    tar zxvf AR81Family-Linux-v1.0.1.9.tar.gz
    sudo su
    make install
    modprobe atl1e
    exit
    However, sometimes after an unexpected reboot, e.g. power failure, I have to repeat this process. It doesn't happen everytime. Can any suggest why this happens, and how to prevent it.

    Thanks for any help.
