Atheros onboard network card not detecting on Ubuntu 10.04

I installed ubuntu 10.04 on a system which has an onboard network card of Atheros.The output of lspci was like this

01:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR8151 v2.0 Gigabit Ethernet (rev c0)

After installtion the network card was disabled i couldnt get the connection.The solution is to install its driver..I got the driver from this link

ubuntu 10.04 :

ubuntu 10.10

After download extract the Package.traverse to the extracted directory through terminal and issue the following commands…

sudo make install
modprobe atl1e

Now restart and see the network will be connected with icon in the network manager…

on 12.04 the network manager works fine no need of driver

Happy Hacking 🙂
