No joy connecting ethernet to my Dell G5 with a Killer E2400 NIC

Hello everyone,

I’m running Ubuntu 20.04 (Linux only) on my Dell G5. I can’t connect using the Killer E2400 built in Ethernet adapter. I have a professionally certified gigabit connection to my router. I have browsed several support threads related to this Ethernet adapter, but they all seem to be aimed at far older releases. I’m honestly shocked that by 2020, people are still having issues with this, but I digress,

I have verified that the NIC is enabled in the BIOS,
I added “iomms=soft” to grub,
I created /etc/udev/rules.d/99-alx.rules file and added:


ACTION=="add", ATTRS{idVendor}=="1969", ATTRS{idProduct}=="e0a1",  RUN+="/sbin/modprobe alx" RUN+="/bin/sh -c 'echo 1969 e0a1 >  /sys/bus/pci/drivers/alx/new_id'"

I’m now at a loss, someone assist? I will post any information requested.
