Have a look at this thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-1741686.htm... (about 10.04, but the principles are the same). simonrm27 October 18, 2012 6:03:00 AM An alternative to the maverick-backport kernel is using the normal lucid kernel and building yourself a DKMS Package for the current version of the e1000e module. It's realy simple: 1. Download the current e1000e module from http://sourceforge.net/projects/e1000/files/ 2. build the DKMS Package, following this instruction: https://wiki.kubuntu.org/Kernel/Dev/DKMSPackaging 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.
