I am trying to use the ethernet port on my Lenovo y580, which previously worked untill I upgraded to ubuntu 15.04 from 14.10. My hardware is recognized, and I can connect to an ethernet network, however whenever I try to load a webpage the connection just stops working. I can observe this by pinging my router while connected via ethernet. Whenever I try to load the page, the ping command just freezes. This has been an issue ever since I upgraded to 15.04 Beta.
I believe this is an error with the alx driver based off of my research. My wireless card is a Qualcomm Atheros AR8161. Does anyone know a workaround, or have a verification of my issue?
EDIT: I tried this, as recommended by one user, and it did not sucessfully compile. I believe that the user here was having a different issue, as he did not specify my issue.
