When I plug in a network cable, it is not recognized. The WI-FI is working properly, though.



ifconfig output:

Download the drivers from this website: http://linuxwireless.org/download/compat-wireless-2.6/.



If you're not sure which one to select, download this one: http://linuxwireless.org/download/compat-wireless-2.6/compat-wireless-2012-09-05-pc.tar.bz2.



First run sudo su and enter your password when prompted.



Then, follow these steps:



tar xjf compat-wireless-2012-09-05-pc.tar.bz2
cd compat-wireless-2012-09-05-pc
./scripts/driver-select alx
make
make install
modprobe alx


Reboot.



It might seem misleading to download the drivers because of the name, but give it a shot.
