    AR8161 Ethernet Card trouble


    I've been trying to install network drivers for my AR8161 card on the latest Kali release to no avail. I took a look at the thread and related google search results, but I couldn't seem to get past that same make error. I had to go through a similar ordeal to get Backtrack 5 networking up and running, but it didn't require manipulating driver files to get it to work. I'm not entirely sure which compat-wireless package I should be using. I tried a variety of different packages, but could never seem to find the if-else statement to edit if the package ended up having the necessary alx driver. I apologize for the lack of details and output included here, I'm relatively new to linux driver troubleshooting.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!

    the driver packages has been moved and renamed to compat-driver
    you can get the releases from

    download the same packages version from you kernel version (uname -a)

    after extraction change into the folder and execute:
    ./script/driver-select atl1c
    make install
    then reboot or modprobe atl1c
