Installing Network Card driver Ubuntu Server
 
Hello all,

I've been trying to get a TP-Link TG-3269 Gigabit ethernet card to work on my Linux install all midday. I'm running Ubuntu Server 6.06.2.

I probably have to install some drivers, but I get errors when trying to do so (and I find their README file very confusing.)

I have got the same problems as they guy on this site: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...g-3269-631288/

But I don't really get what he did (I'm not so Linux savvy when it's about installing drivers etc. if not using apt-get ...).

If anybody is able to help me, thanks. If you need more info, feel free to reply!

Run
Code:

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r` build-essential
Then download and unzip the driver, change to the driver directory, and run
Code:

sudo make clean modules
sudo make install
sudo depmod -a
