Ethernet driver ubuntu 14.04 - Ethnernet controller I219-LM

Hello i am trying to enable ethernet in Dell Precision supporting Ubuntu 14.04. When i downloaded the drivers from the download site

and try "make" the make has support for only cleaning files and no compilation. how can i enable Ethernet in Ubuntu 14.04.

My system supports Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation Ethernet Connection (2) I219-LM (rev 31).

regards

Dear Manikantan,

 

 

Thank you for posting your query in Wired Ethernet communities.

 

 

Kindly download the latest igb driver found in this site - https://sourceforge.net/projects/e1000/files/igb%20stable/5.3.5.4/ https://sourceforge.net/projects/e1000/files/igb%20stable/5.3.5.4/

Hello,

I have the same issue here. So I downloaded the driver and did make install. It compiles fine but I didn't see NIC gets detected from dmsg.
