UPDATE: The ALX driver will be officially added in newer kernels, but in the meantime you can find it here: The ALX driver

The original poster didn't put this up so I will. Apparently there is supposed to be a combined bluetooth/network driver by Atheros, and it needs the alx module. (From someone elses post on Ubuntu 12.04) but there is no alx module. Still isn't showing up on my Lenovo Ideapad Y480 on kernel 3.5.0-18.
