Nothing related to ath10k from running lsmod...which is weird because before compiling the kernel ath10k_core and ath10k_pci used to showed up

Hi...

Sorry to be a bother but could you provide the entire output of...

Code:
lspci -nnk | grep -i net -A2
I need to know for sure what modules are loading or not loading. I'm not seeing either one in lsmod.

Regards...

Hi...

Very strange, I would have thought that the newer kernel would have had the correct "alx" driver for your ethernet chip.

What is the result of this command?

Code:
sudo modprobe alx
Also, please post what's going on in...

Code:
dmesg
Thanks!

I am thinking that something went wrong compiling that kernel.

Code:
sudo modprobe alx
gives me nothing.

I've attached the output of dmesg. Really large wall of text.

I'll try and compile that kernel again, and see if any error messages show up.

Whenever I see an Atheros or Realtek adapter, I think of one thing if it's not working - firmware.

If all else fails, try installing firmware-atheros (You may have to enable additional repos i/etc/apt/sources.list - see the Mint documenation for valid repos, or if you use Syanptic - "Settings->Repositories").

Edit: I also found this thread via DuckDuckGo, take a look:

Ok, thanks for providing the outputs. Lord willing, I'll look over the dmesg report when I get some time later. In the meantime, if you get any kind of error messages, don't install the kernel. See if goumba's suggestions help.

If I'm not mistaken; the driver that should show in the output of lsmod should be the alx driver. (for Ethernet)

Please run lsmod and post the output when you have time.

Hi...

The OP has posted the results of lsmod in #31. Unfortunately, I saw no instance of alx in the report, unless I missed something.

No, you didn't miss anything.
I didn't see the alx driver in the lsmod output either.

Didn't the Ethernet work before the newer kernel?

Maybe try the patch? (just an idea)
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=163594

<Or> roll back to kernel 3.10 when the alx driver was first introduced.

When I was running Debian the drivers that I installed where not enough.
Once I installed the firmware I had success with wifi.

Hi Ztcoracat...

Thanks for your help

Yes, it did and the only mention of it I found in dmesg was this...

Code:
[   81.737044] alx 0000:04:00.0 eth0: Qualcomm Atheros AR816x/AR817x Ethernet [44:8a:5b:f1:77:4f]
That tells me the driver appears to be present but yet, modprobe shows nothing.

@davdo91: Another question I have for you: Does your system run stable with this new kernel. No unusual glitches or problems you're experiencing?

Regards...

Maybe try dmesg | grep <device-name> to get the details:-

Also try lsmod | grep alx.

hi goumba,
I am new to linux and I am still not very clear on what 'installing firmware' means.
If I download all the necessary firmwares for atheros, and place them in correct directory such as lib/drivers/firmware/atheros/..... does that count as installing the firmware? If I were on windows. I would run some kind of .exe file, but I don't see anything like that in linux other than apt-get install command.

I think I will roll back to kernel 3.x.x, and see if I can get my ethernet connection back. I will also post results of lsmod | grep alx when I get back home

also, this is the error output when I recompiled kernel.
Code:
run-parts: executing /etc/kernel/postinst.d/dkms 4.2.0-rc3-wl-ath /boot/vmlinuz-4.2.0-rc3-wl-ath
Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 4.2.0-rc3-wl-ath (x86_64)
Consult /var/lib/dkms/ndiswrapper/1.59/build/make.log for more information.

run-parts: executing /etc/kernel/postinst.d/zz-update-grub 4.2.0-rc3-wl-ath /boot/vmlinuz-4.2.0-rc3-wl-ath
So I guess kernel is not compiling well after all.
