I have a desktop PC that I built that I recently installed Ubuntu 14.04 next to Windows 8.1. It has an Ethernet port on the motherboard (MSI Z97S) and a wireless card in a PCI-Express slot (Asus PCE-N15).

(Here's a link to the parts in the build if that helps: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/JpQgmG)

I have tried to install the drivers for both and have only managed to get the wireless to kind of work (it is slower than when booted into windows and disconnects periodically). Not sure if I'm getting the wrong drivers or installing them wrong or what. I'm pretty new to Linux so any explanation of commands that I should do would be helpful.

Extra info:

The Ethernet works fine when booted into Windows so I know it's not a problem with the ports or cables.

ifconfig:
