Ubuntu 13.04 (64bit for your UEFI machine) comes with a working alx driver for ethernet and rtl8723 driver for wireless. You don't have to build anything to get networking anymore. I have no direct experience with the 32 bit distribution, but since they are build from the same sources, I'd expect that the drivers would be present there too. You can download the 13.04 iso from http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop.
