you probably have a source tarball for the driver, can you give us the specific details of the motherboard? or what landriver? so we know exactly what to look for in how to install said driver?

first you need to prepare ubuntu smile.gif

open up a terminal:
Code:
sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-generic

once that is done, you will need to extract the tar, to a folder, just double click on it, and extract thru the gui.

in terminal:
Code:
cd <name of folder>/src
sudo make install
sudo modprobe e1000e

also add it to the /etc/modules, in terminal:
Code:
gksudo gedit /etc/modules

this will open up a root gedit, with the file, start a new line and add:

e1000e

save, and exit.

you will need to do these steps everytime the kernel updates (which isn't too often), except for adding it to /etc/modules.

if there are any errors, let me know, or you are having problems, i will download the driver and do screenshots.

open up software-sources, enable all the ones in ubuntu software tab and then go to other software and enable the ones there.

then go back to terminal:

sudo apt-get update

then try to install it, as it should be there.

are you the 64 or 32 bit version? and this is for ubuntu 11.10? cause i'm showing at least in the 64 bit 11.10, that this driver is included?

edit: looks like the driver included doesn't support all, so you might still need this one.
