I am currently dual booting Windows 8 and Ubuntu 12.10 on my laptop. When I boot Ubuntu the ethernet connection doesn't connect, and as a result I can't get an internet connection. When I boot in Windows it connects fine. Having done some searching, it seems there is a problem with the ethernet AR8161 card. I have tried following the instructions in other threads, but haven't had any luck. I'm not really familiar with how to find, download and install packages so any advice would be really appreciated. As I haven't been able to get an internet connetion I haven't installed Ubuntu on the machine yet, so I'm still booting it off the USB.
What do I need to do?
Thanks in advance!
