I tried to install Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS on my new notebook but the installation failed saying
stopping mount network filesystem.
So I tried with Linux Mint 13 mate 64bit, and the installation succeeded, even if neither ethernet nor wireless connection was working during install.
After installing everything is fine except that I neither have ethernet nor wireless connection at all. The network manager reports
No network devices detected.
Acer Aspire E-522- 65204G1TMnkk
Processor is a 4x AMD A6-5200 APU
Radeon (TM) HD Graphics, 4gb RAM.
The output of
01:00.0 Ethernet Controller (0200): Atheros Communications Inc. Device (1969:10a1] (rev 13) 05:00.0 Network Controller (0280]: Atheros Communications Inc. Device (168c:0036] (rev 01)
Any suggestion to fix this problem?
Here I am with the results of the commands:

Update 12 february:
I found the solution, both for the ethernet card and the wireless adapter, but the problem is that they do not work together. Doing:
"Download compat-drivers source code https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/projects/backports/2013/03/04/compat-drivers-2013-03-04-u.tar.bz2
Extract the tarball and type the following commands on a terminal:
cd [path-to-extracted-driver] ./scripts/driver-select alx make sudo make install Reboot the system"
the ethernet connection worked well. But still no wireless.
After that, I followed these suggestions for the wireless adapter:
"sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic build-essential
tar xvf compat*
Even if the last command "modprobe ath9k" didn't work, I rebooted and I had the wireless working BUT .... no more ethernet again!!!
Is there anybody who can tell me how to solve this?
