Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

So I literally just built my first computer from scratch and I can't get the network card to work as I've gathered it requires getting some drivers somehow..

Motherboard : MSI Z87-GD65

CPU : Intel Haswell i7

Ubuntu Ver : 12.04

Using the on-board network port

Please help I'm about to start crying into my keyboard over this (not really).

Any info would be greatly appreciated, also please be very specific as to what I have to do as I have not used Ubuntu very much so talk to me like a child, I won't take offence.

Also I've already tried following the instructions here : How do I get a Qualcomm Atheros Killer E2200 gigabit ethernet card working?

I don't know if I'm just retarded or am missing something

Before I propose a solution, I need additional information. Please open a terminal and run: uname -r. Edit your question to add the result. Also, do you have or can you get a temporary wireless connection so we can download packages? –  chili555 Oct 31 '13 at 12:39
