Ubuntu 12.04 x64 doesn't recognize newest Intel Ethernet adapter on my desktop (Intel Ethernet Connection i217-V). I downloaded required driver from Intel and compiled it using make. Now I have:

alex@alex64-six:~$ find / -name 'e1000e.ko' 2>/dev/null

The first line is new driver compiled from Intel sources. The second line is probably existing driver from Ubuntu distribution, which doesn't recognize new Ethernet adapter. How can I apply the new driver instead of existing one?

Any other solution is welcome. For now, I cannot upgrade to latest Ubuntu release, because I use some third-party products.


Try with installing Common ethernet drivers containing package :

sudo apt-get install linux-image-`uname -r`
