First, Merry Christmas.

I'm a on a fresh Ubuntu Linux 12.10 - x64. The wireless is not working at all.

I downloaded Realtek RTL8168/8111E driver for Linux (for kernel 3.x and 2.6.x and 2.4.x on Realtek website.)

I ran ./autorun.sh as root.
It failed to compile the driver for my kernel, but it removed the old default module, and then it fails to install the new 8168 module.

I give a look to old post with older driver version:
From TWM-KD, on Ask Ubuntu and on Wordpress.

They all correct the problem if the R86 is well compiled, but here, it's not happening and the compilation failed. I tried to install build-essential to be sure that the compilation would be OK. But it's still not working. I can't get the r8168.ko file.

And now the old drive has been removed so I can't connect to Internet with the wired connection.
