This tutorial will explain Howto setup Networking (Wired and Wireless) on Asus eeePC 1005HA,1008HA in ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty)

For Wired connection

First you need to download AR81Family Linux Driver from here at the time of writing AR81Family-linux-v1.0.0.10.tar.gz version (use a usb device,because you probably don't have network).I am providing the AR81Family Linux Driver download from here

Now you need to extract this file

tar -xzvf AR81Family-linux-v1.0.0.10.tar.gz

cd AR81*

cd src


sudo make install

sudo insmod atl1e.ko

That's it now you should be having your wired network is working

Note:- If you are using 2.6.30+ kernels you will need to modify kcompat.h from

#define IRQ_NONE


#define IRQ_HANDLED 1
#define IRQ_NONE 0

Also, don't use the atl1c driver from 2.6.30+ as it doesn't work

You can check which linux headers you have to install using the following command

uname -r

For Wireless Connection

Once with the wired network installed, you can simply install this package to get the wireless network

sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-jaunty

    After installing your wired adapters the repository (apt-get) might bug you.

    if it says that the backports cant be found or something similar do this:
    apt-get update
