    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/quest...installation-on-gutsy-tp-link-tg-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
