I have installed Ubuntu 16.04 LTS on my Desktop, but Ethernet is not connected. My Computer uses Intel Ethernet Connection I219-LM. In my opnion, Ubuntu doesn't have installed a proposal network driver. I can't find ethernet driver.
Same ethernet adaptor for me on my ubuntu 16.
Download e1000e-188.8.131.52 (Check latest on Intel website).
Got the tar.gz file downloaded untar it:
tar xfv e1000e-184.108.40.206.tar.gz
Goto src directory
Compile and install
sudo make install
This worked for me.
I met the same case that I can't see the network card on my Linux only computer which uses Intel Ethernet card. And installing the Intel driver didn't help. There's another topic about an "Wired Unmanaged" Ethernet card, that Lou Burnard suggested to:
- Edit the
/etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.confand change the line
- Restart network manager with
sudo service network-manager restart.
And for me I need to wait for it to work.
