Hello

iam newbie so foregive me...

Iam booting my Dell Vostro 3360 using systemrescuecd-x86-3.1.2 but when I try to check ifconfig...there is no eth0 present in my system
Only Loopback and wifi. Here is hardware adapter present in my laptop: Atheros AR8161/8165 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller

How can i quick enable eth0 ? I need to install fresh system on my Dell (image)

I found this line in the internet:
"The AR8161 is a very new combined Ethernet/Bluetooth controller and its driver alx is in the testing/QA process, so it's not in the kernel yet."
If i find time i second this.
