    Re: Probs with compilling r8168 driver

    I had the same issue. This fixed it for me:

    I just downloaded the tar and ran:
    tar xjf r8168_scripts.tar.bz2 && cd r8168_scripts && sudo ./switchmods;
    like the page says. It fixed everything.

    The page also shows you how to build the driver from the source (which also worked for me).

    Here is the source: Conn=4&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false#RTL8111B/RTL8168B/RTL8111/RTL8168<br>RTL8111C/RTL8111CP/RTL8111D(L)<br>RTL8168C/RTL8111DP
