How can I install the Atheros AR8161 drivers without an internet connection for fedora 19?
How do I install drivers for the Atheros AR8161 Ethernet controller on 64-bit 12.10 using an Internet-connected 32-bit 12.04 PC and a USB flash drive?
Having bought a new HP Elite desktop PC and installed 64-bit Ubuntu 12.10 I've found it unable to connect to network thanks to its Atheros AR8161 Ethernet controller.
There are no PCI slots in the PC to use an old PCI NIC.
I recently changed the motherboard in my 14.04 server. It has two NICs: Intel i217V and Atheros AR8161. I could never get the Intel to work, so I shut it off in bios. The AR8161 works, but it is unreliable.
