I have the same issue, I don't know what to do.
I've installed another linux distro, Virtualbox, installed it on a Virtualbox machine.
but I'm not convinced. ???

I have problems with the installation of such driver, the kernel thing.
Is there any guide other than the one on the driver's page.

download the file to your home directory and then:
1. tar zxf e1000e-x.x.x.tar.gz
2. cd e1000e-x.x.x/src/
3. make install
the driver will be installed in /lib/modules/*KERNEL VERSION*/kernel/drivers/net/e1000e/e1000e.ko
4. modprobe e1000e *or* insmod /lib/modules/<KERNEL VERSION>/kernel/drivers/net/e1000e/e1000e.ko
5. restart the machine
