I've spend a majority of my time trying to fix this issue for the past few days, and would really appreciate help on it.

I have a Atheros GbE LAN chip, and 12.10 Ubuntu installed.
I have seen quite a few other threads that solve similar issues, but I have no seen anything that has worked for me.
I'm incredibly new to linux, so that may be why a lot of the solutions aren't worked.

Thanks.
