I've just bought a new laptop (Lenovo g580), but I can't get the wired Internet working. Wireless is working flawless, but wired won't work.
The ethernet card is an Atheros card, unfortunately I couldn't find which series. lspci does show the card:
$ lspci | grep -i ethernet
01:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Device 1090 (rev 08)

EDIT: It turns out my ethernet card is an Atheros AR8162
