I'm having a problem connecting to internet on Ubuntu 12.10(just installed after giving up with 12.04 issues with graphics card) with a wireless and with a wired connection. I have looked into solving this problem myself but after much trouble and frustration I could use some help.
To my understanding I believe its because i have an AR8161 Ethernet controller and don't have the proper driver packages. This is where i'm having trouble, i don't know which packages to install or how to. I tried the download links people posted for people with a very similar issue. Either they don't work or i'm not installing them right. The way i tried to install them was i downloaded them on this computer and used a USB drive(key?) to transfer to the laptop without the internet connection and then opened them with the Ubuntu software center which led me to an error every time.
Any help will be greatly appreciated and any information you need from me i will post.
