Then you're (hopefully) done...

good luck

This worked so easily for me. I went to sourceforge and downloaded the latest stable version, then followed the instruction in the README after I unzipped the archive. Literally all I had to do was:

tar -xvf e1000e-1.6.3.tar.gz
cd e1000e-1.6.3/src/
sudo make install
sudo modprobe e1000e
sudo dhclient eth0

Done. Thanks for the help.
