I am having a problem with Ubuntu 14.04 and the Atheros AR8161. I can connect to the ethernet port fine and be connected to the internet, but the connection drops out sometimes, such as after an hour or two of running. This didn't happen on older version of Ubuntu (12.04)
I am a very new Ubuntu user with a Toshiba Satellite L855-S5243 with a Realtek RTL8723AE Wireless LAN 802.11N PCI-E NIC wireless card and a Atheros AR8161/8165 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller and even though i have internet connection on windows i cannot connect to the internet on ubuntu using ethernet or wireless.

Been looking online for Tuts to fix my problem and have had no luck. I got a new z87n Mobo and none of the LANS or the WIFI work.

I am on Ubuntu 12.04 now, but have a 12.3.6 compiled kernel.
