Default Networkdriver for Intel 82579

Dear list,

I have here a brand new mainboard (Asus P8P67 Pro) with the new sandy
chip on it. If I look into the manual it says there is an Intel 82579
Gigabit LAN chip on-board.

I tried it with kernel 2.6.37 (from kernel.org) and dmesg tells me:
e1000e: Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network Driver - 1.2.7-k2
e1000e: Copyright (c) 1999 - 2010 Intel Corporation.

e1000e 0000:00:19.0: eth0: MAC: 10, PHY: 11, PBA No: ffffff-0ff

I searched around and found the tip to use a newer driver.
I downloaded it here:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/e1000/files/e1000e%20stable/1.2.20/

But if I try to compile the driver I get:
/usr/src/e1000e-1.2.20/src/netdev.c: In function 'e1000_restore_vlan':
/usr/src/e1000e-1.2.20/src/netdev.c:3076: error: 'VLAN_GROUP_ARRAY_LEN'
undeclared (first use in this function)
/usr/src/e1000e-1.2.20/src/netdev.c:3076: error: (Each undeclared

/usr/src/e1000e-1.2.20/src/netdev.c:3076: error: for each function it
appears in.)
make[2]: *** [/usr/src/e1000e-1.2.20/src/netdev.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [_module_/usr/src/e1000e-1.2.20/src] Error 2
make: *** [default] Error 2

Can here please help someone?

Thanks a lot

Does the one that comes with the kernel not work for some reason? It's
here according to the search page:


│ Prompt: Intel(R) PRO/1000 Gigabit Ethernet support
│ Defined at drivers/net/Kconfig:2085
│ Depends on: NETDEVICES [=y] && NETDEV_1000 [=y] && PCI [=y]
│ Location:
│ -> Device Drivers
│ -> Network device support (NETDEVICES [=y])
│ -> Ethernet (1000 Mbit) (NETDEV_1000 [=y])



Just build it in or add it as a module. In case you are new, go to
Device Drivers, Network Device support, Ethernet 1000 Mbit then look for
Intel Pro/1000. Sort of lists it backwards up there. ;-)
