Fedora 17(x64) Atheros ethernet not working

Hi all,

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)
I wish I could tell you I did X and Y to solve the problem myself, however I have no idea where to begin to solve this problem, and Google didn't help me that much either. Could someone help me to get my wired internet connection working?

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

After some trial and error I found the following solution:


In my case however I needed to do
./script/driver-select atl1c
instead of
./script/driver-select atx
