    Question Atheros AR8161/8165 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller Driver

    Hello everyone;
    I am looking for "Atheros AR8161/8165 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller" LAN Driver for UBUNTU 12.10 64bit
    Who can help me to find? (I google it but nothing useful)

    also this is the result of lspci -vk:

    That^ chip is a newcomer to the market and its driver for linux is still under development. Try either of these solutions (both are same, just using different versions of the alx driver):
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=12206393 (originally suggested & tested by chili555, using a newer version)

    Or,

    http://askubuntu.com/questions/16519...net-controller (by izx, using an older version of the driver, apparently working for many)

    Hope it'll work for you too.

    I use the by now delivered alx driver, wireless works, but wired ethernet does not. Haven't had such issues in a long time. I think it is time that we start to rumble on manufacturer's social websites if they still release new hardware without proper linux drivers - this really should be ended now. Place your comments on their social media sites mentioned in the footer of atheros.com .. I certainly did..

    The ALX driver will be officially added in newer kernels, but in the meantime you can find it here: The ALX driver.
