    Ok, I've apply the patch over the 3.9.6 kernel and it work fine.
    Thank again. In hope this will be included in next satndard kernel it will be cool.

    Re: Qualcomm Atheros Bigfoot Killer E2200 Ethernet working in linux

    Hey again

    After installing updates my ethernet stopped working again! Ive attatched the updates that were installed in the attatchment.
    Will reinstalling the driver solve it or is there more to it?

    The interface does not show up in the network manager GUI but I can see it in lspci. My switch the computer is connected to indicates 100Mbit connection in stead of 1Gbit, but it does report connection

    Thanks

    It should:
    Code:
    cd Desktop/driver_file/wherever
    sudo su
    make clean
    make
    make install 
    modprobe alx
    exit

    Jap, that worked! Thank you.
    Just the modprobe was not enough, it required a reboot but now everything seems to be good.

    For some reason I wasn't able to get the patch to work with my E2200 in my MSI GT70 running the 3.9.6 kernel so I created my own patch maybe this will work for someone else too.

    Step by Step instructions for applying the patch and compiling/installing alx:

    1) wget http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kern...2-20-u.tar.bz2

    2) Save the contents of this pastebin as e2200support.patch http://pastebin.com/FU7zVmhr # The file upload didn't want to work for me.

    3) tar -xjf compat-drivers-2013-02-20-u.tar.bz2

    4) patch --dry-run -p0 < ./e2200support.patch # Not really needed but lets you check the patch

    5) patch -p0 < ./e2200support.patch

    6) cd compat-drivers-2013-02-20-u

    7) make

    8) sudo make install

    9) reboot or modprobe alx

    Having some trouble with this, hope someone can help. Everything compiles and installs without error, but when I modprobe it and add it to /etc/modules and reboot, it still doesn't seem to do anything. The model of mine is E2205, lspci still gives me [1969:e091] but that might be the issue.

    By 'everything' do you mean the procedure in the post just above yours or which? This is over 100 posts long and there are several methods proposed.

    By the way, lspci will never change, whether the driver works or not, unless you change devices. lspci is a listing of the details of your device only.

    I tried the method outlined in the first post (along with the second patch posted a little bit later), then after that failed to do anything I upgraded my kernel to 3.9.8 and tried the method posted above, with the same result.

    EDIT: Nevermind, I got it working. Not so good with Linux networking... >.>

    Would it be possible to use dkms with this to compile it automatically on kernel upgrades?

    hello,I succeeded some time ago to use the patch with the post of sauyon on page 7, but I updated my fedora (I know this is ubuntu forum but...), and now I get this error upon modprobe:
    Code:
     modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'alx': Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
    I also tried with Krassmussen post, same problem.

    I have kernel 3.9.6-200.fc18.x86_64

    Edit: and this time i don't even see the wifi on my GE-60 :/ ...


    Any idea please ?
    Thanks
