I have instaled Ubuntu 12.04 but my network conection doesn't work and i know it's becouse of the drivers

I've run

$ lspci | grep Ethernet

and this is the result

02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications AR8152 v2.0 Fast Ethernet (rev c1)

and even ifconfig -a and lspci -v and posted it in paste bin

ifconfig -a and lspci -v

I try to fix it by dowloading this drivers

Drivers Website

and instaling them with this commands

$ tar -xjvf compat-wireless-2.6.tar.bz2
$ cd compat-wireless*
$ scripts/driver-select atl1c
$ make
$ sudo make install
$ sudo modprobe atl1c

but it fails in the last one becouse it cant find atl1c

with compat-wireless-2012-04-26-pc.tar.bz2 it complete the modprobe but the conection dont works

Please, I need a solution. I dont know what else to do for making this work

I did the following. It worked for an AR8152 v1.1 (as opposed to your v2.0) - perhaps it will work for you.

  1. Go to linuxwireless.org/download/compat-wireless-2.6/
  2. Download the most recent ( compat-wireless-2012-04-26.tar.bz2 )

Then do:

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
make
sudo make install

Then just reboot.

If you can see the only difference with the what i did is that you've installed built-essential using an internet conection but i dont have one –  Miguel Lara Apr 28 '12 at 23:16
    
compat-wireless-2012-07-03.tar.bz2 does not work either for the v2.0 adapter. It builds, installs and even loads the module, but network is still unfunctional. –  count0 Aug 3 '12 at 2:44

I had exactly this problem, no networks detected at all with my Asus eee pc. After a very frustrating day trying everything I did the below and my netbook immediately found my wireless network:

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 ath9k
make
sudo make install

the atl1c did not work for me, ath9k did.

Many thanks

This worked perfectly for my Acer e443. The LAN never worked until I installed the correct driver.

The correct one for me was:

Install build-essential from .deb file. Download driver file: http://linuxwireless.org/download/compat-wireless-2.6/

cd ~/Downloads 
tar-xjvf compat-wireless-2012-04-26.tar.bz2
cd compat-wireless*
scripts/driver-select atl1c
make
sudo make install
sudo modprobe atl1c
