    Just to let everyone know that this is not a driver issue! Turns out the Cat5e cable I was using was faulty. Replaced it with a cat6 and now have a super fast 1gpbs link.

    Mahler, thanks again for this - the NIC has now been brought to life!
    This patch also needs to be applied when using Ubuntu 12.04 and Kernel 3.4-precise.

    With that I got things working with Ubuntu 12.04, Ivy bridge processor (that needs kernel 3.4) and LAN.

    Thanks for sharing this!

    Edit: it works directly after install. But Ubuntu does not start up any more with 3.4 kernel. So still looking for a solution (will see if Ubuntu 12.10 makes it work without customizations)

    Question Re: Qualcomm Atheros Bigfoot Killer E2200 Ethernet working in linux

    Can someone confirm that this Network card is supported in Ubuntu 12.10? (with our without custom driver)?

    It isn't supported directly, but can be done with modification of compat-wireless.

    Hi All, just letting everybody know that this modification with the patch mentioned still works for ubuntu 12.10 when using the stock kernel. At this time, the network card is still not officially supported.

    I'd also like to let everyone know that the patch mentioned above also works for 3.6.x kernels. You may upgrade to these and still have your network card working.

    Mahler122: Pulled the latest drivers from http://www.orbit-lab.org/kernel/comp...1-snpc.tar.bz2 and applied your patch. Everything seems to be working amazingly well on Ubuntu 12.04. Thanks so much!

    Re: Qualcomm Atheros Bigfoot Killer E2200 Ethernet working in linux

    Finally got it working, with Intel Ivy Bridge processor and Ubuntu 12.04 and Kernel 3.6

    Steps:


    The topic start post does not mention the step: /scripts/driver-select alx, linuxwireless.org does. Should it be listed there as well?

    If you have the same device, there is no reason why not. Please verify:
    Code:
    lspci -nn | grep 0200
