    Today I installed 9.04 RC.
    The motherboard is an Asrock G31M-GS with the same RTL8111DL NIC.
    As expected, I had to install the r8168 driver because the r8169 driver included didn't work.
    After installing and connecting, I made a system update and an updated kernel was in the list.
    And surprise: the r8169 driver included in the new kernel is working out of the box!
    I removed every r8168 reference from the system just to be sure and the network was still ok.

    Re: RTL8111/RTL8168 Network Connection Fix

    This morning after a reboot and some hardware changes, I lost the ethernet. I could see both drivers in lspci -v: "Kernel driver in use: r8168, r8169"
    One small thing to avoid the return of the bad driver, add the following line to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist:
    Code:
    blacklist r8169

    I don't know if you did a kernel upgrade and what version of ubuntu are you using, but the 9.04 version has a kernel with a working r8169 driver for my RTL8111DL network controller.
    I'm writing right now from the Jaunty live cd released today and the network is ok with r8169 module.

    I am having problems with r8169 on 9.04. I have tried to compile r8168, but I keep coming up with errors. I must be missing a package. I just can't figure out what I am missing.

    chad@chad-desktop:~/chadtemp/r8168-8.012.00$ sudo make clean modules
    make -C src/ clean

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    The RTL8111 bug is still there in 9.04 (I'm on kernel 2.6.28-13-generic right now) - following the directions in post #1 seems to have fixed it for me - Just copied 10 gigs over a gigabit link with no problems.

    I'm puzzled by why this haven't been fixed in the kernel by now...

    Success, works for me. Many Thanks

    Bakechad, read back in this thread - you need to install linux-headers for your kernel.

    I have just installed the 2.6.28-15 kernel and the r8169 isn't loaded at all.

    Re: RTL8111/RTL8168 Network Connection Fix

    trying to follow the first post as Igot RTL8111 onboard LAN. But the make command won't work, look like the required pack for this wasn't got installed. No I don't have a network. How can I install the package containing the make command.

    I used the netinstall cd and got the distro installed without any trouble.

    Thanks
