    Re: Lenovo G480 / Atheros AR8162 woes: unable to initiate wired/dsl

    I had the same problem with having no wireless, so chili555's instructions in post #5 were perfect! Doubly helpful as a beginner as I learned a lot.

    For reference my controller was AR8161 on a P8H77-V ASUS motherboard, using ubuntu 12.10.

    Thanks muchly

    Hi

    I have a very similar problem (using 12.04). My wireless does work, yet my ethernet doesnt.

    Your device is supposed to work with the driver atl1c. Let's load it and see what happens:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe atl1c
    dmesg | grep atl1c
    ifconfig

    Please plug in the ethernet, try to connect and run and post:
    Code:
    sudo cat /var/log/syslog | grep -e etwork -e alx | tail-n20
    Sorry for the delay in replying.

    Re: Lenovo G480 / Atheros AR8162 woes: unable to initiate wired/dsl

    Chili555,

    I've been using your instructions for getting the alx driver to work for about 2 months now, and it has, up until today, worked for me every time I've needed it.

    Today however, it is not working. After I do the driver-select alx, and go and enter make, it errors out.

    Code:
    bonez@Utopia:~/compat-wireless-3.6.6-1-snpc$ ./scripts/driver-select alx
    Processing new driver-select request...
    Backing up makefile: Makefile.bk
    Backup exists: Makefile.bk

    bonez@Utopia:~/compat-wireless-3.6.6-1-snpc$ make
    ./scripts/gen-compat-autoconf.sh /home/bonez/compat-wireless-3.6.6-1-snpc/.config /home/bonez/compat-wireless-3.6.6-1-snpc/config.mk > include/linux/compat_autoconf.h
    make -C /lib/modules/3.5.0-17-generic/build M=/home/bonez/compat-wireless-3.6.6-1-snpc modules
    make: *** /lib/modules/3.5.0-17-generic/build: No such file or directory.  Stop.
    make: *** [modules] Error 2
    I tried this first on a fresh ubuntu install which I had not updated yet, and I thought that was the problem. So i did another install on another partition, but let the installer run updates while installing. I followed your steps and got the same error.

    I also tried downloading a newer version of the driver, the 3.6 version, from the same site, and still have the same error when I enter "make". Any ideas? This is really frustrating because my wireless speeds are like 50 - 75 kb/s max.

    This version makes perfectly on my 3.5.0.18 system: http://www.orbit-lab.org/kernel/comp...1-snpc.tar.bz2

    Re: Lenovo G480 / Atheros AR8162 woes: unable to initiate wired/dsl

    Thanks for the quick reply. Unfortunately I get the same make error with that version too.

    Code:
    bonez@Utopia:~/compat-wireless-3.5.4-1-snpc$ make
    ./scripts/gen-compat-autoconf.sh /home/bonez/compat-wireless-3.5.4-1-snpc/.config /home/bonez/compat-wireless-3.5.4-1-snpc/config.mk > include/linux/compat_autoconf.h
    make -C /lib/modules/3.5.0-17-generic/build M=/home/bonez/compat-wireless-3.5.4-1-snpc modules
    make: *** /lib/modules/3.5.0-17-generic/build: No such file or directory.  Stop.
    make: *** [modules] Error 2
    bonez@Utopia:~/compat-wireless-3.5.4-1-snpc$
    Is it possible that the original makefile that got created when I did driver-select for the 3.5.1-1 version is somehow affecting the newer versions? I notice that when I do driver-select with either of the newer versions it says this:

    Code:
    bonez@Utopia:~/compat-wireless-3.5.4-1-snpc$ ./scripts/driver-select alx
    Processing new driver-select request...
