As the forum suggests I am very new to linux. I have installed CAELinux 2011 and have been unable to get my ethernet connection to work. I have installed linux on a partition of my Toshiba laptop. I have a AR8152 v2.0 Fast Ethernet device and have tried to install a driver for it but still do not get results.
I have tried doing what's suggested in the following link (http://askubuntu.com/questions/12715...r8152-os-12-04
) by downloading compat-wireless-2012-05-10.tar.bz2 from this link (http://linuxwireless.org/download/compat-wireless-2.6/
). I also downloaded (from the first link under North America on http://packages.ubuntu.com/precise/a...ntial/download
) and installed build-essential.
I then followed the below steps copied from the first link:
- sudo apt-get update
- sudo apt-get install build-essential
- cd ~/Downloads # [or wherever you download it to]
- tar-xjvf compat-wireless-2012-04-26.tar.bz2
- cd compat-wireless*
- scripts/driver-select atl1c
- sudo make install
- Then just reboot.
Everything seems to work as it should (although I am not sure how it should work, but there are no errors), but when I reboot nothing seems to have changed. Am I missing something? There are no more instructions for after reboot, but I still do not get internet.
To be clear, I don't have any internet access when on Linux, but I followed these steps verbatim. I also tried the suggestion lower on the first link to install ath9k instead of atl1c. I know the that the connection through the ethernet is not the problem and works, I have tested it with another system.
I may be missing something simple, but regardless I would like a solution that gets my ethernet connection working. Any help would be great, thanks!
