Acer Aspire One AOD250 Wired Network Fix

As an amendment to this post, I did find one technical issue.  Amusingly wireless networking worked immediately, but wired did not.  It is almost always the other way around for me.  However, there is a really great amount of documentation that exists for this:  http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1206649.  I am going to repeat the pertinent parts here:

tar -xvzf AR81Family-linux-v1.0.0.10.tar.gz
cd src
sudo make install
sudo modprobe atl1e

I received an error from the tar command, but I kept going and that worked exactly perfectly for me.  In fact, my wired network registered as connected immediately after running the last command.

Not only did I contribute a bug report, but got the joy of updating the Hardware wiki:  https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupport/Machines/Netbooks#Acer%20Aspire%20One.
