I am in a desperate need of help I am installing xubuntu (I know this is not an ubuntu forum, but the guys there don't notice my post:( ) on my friend's laptop which is an Asus F3E but I cannot make the ethernet card to work. It is an Atheros card.
03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications L1 Gigabit Ethernet (rev b0)
Apparently, the driver module should already be built in the kernel but it doesn't seem to be working properly.
Lsmod shows the module loaded but it is not associate with eth0.
petra@petra-ntb:~$ sudo lsmod | grep atl1
[sudo] password for petra:
atl1 35749 0
I tried to add this line
alias eth0 atl1
to the modprobe.d folder with no luck.
How to make it work? I don't mind compiling it but I can't find where the source could be.
Moreover I was looking everywhere and I can't find any solution.
