I've recently purchased a Lenovo G580 laptop. Make of the ethernet card is Atheros. Unaware of the version: one of AR813x. I'm unable to configure ethernet[wired network] on the same. Wicd was turned on by the supply of these commands in the terminal:
/etc/init.d/wicd start /usr/bin/wicd-client on ifconfig
I've gone through the rest of the forums as well and found that Lenovo G580's ethernet configuration issues can be nullified by installing one of the compat drivers said by many. I've tried running many packages.
And sometimes when i give the command to access the folder which contains the compat files, it gives me an access denied statement.
I've been trying since a week reading lots of forums, but no luck. Nothing's working.
