I would like to use gNewSense but I have a problem with my ethernet controller. It is Qualcomm Atheros AR8171/8175 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.20). I am temporarily using Trisquel, but I would prefer a Debian based Gnu/Linux distribution, which is completely free. The Ethernet controller works fine with Trisquel, which means that there should be a free driver for it.
Could you help me find it and give me some instructions on how to install it, because I am completely new to GNU/Linux.

Thank you :)
