Get your wired connection eth0 detected in ubuntu 12.04

23 Jul

Here are some simple steps to follow to get your wired connection displayed on your the machine interface.

Step 1. Download suitable driver from following link

http://linuxwireless.org/download/compat-wireless-2.6/ . Well in my case I downloaded compat-wireless-2012-07-03-pc.tar.bz2  which worked for me.

Step 2.

Copy the .tar file in your home directory. Now we need to extract the downloaded file. Copy past following command in your terminal and press enter.

tar -xvf compat-wireless-2012-07-03-pc.tar.bz2 (since I downloaded this file. If your file is different change the name accordingly. )

Step 3.

Now copy paste the following command one by one in your terminal:

cd compat-wireless-2012-07-03-pc
scripts/driver-select alx
make
sudo make install
sudo modprobe alx

And thats all. 🙂 Now you should be able to connect Internet using wired connection. You can see your LAN mac address on terminal by typing the following command:

ifconfig

Get going 🙂
