    [solved] Wired ethernet Asus K50C Realtek 8168/8111

    Hi and first of all sorry for my english.

    I bought a laptop Asus k50c and i have problem with wired connection (wifi works fine). Ubuntu 10.04 load r8169 module for this card and i cant link detected. I can see some progress when i use official module from the realtek webpage (r8168-8.018) - link was detected but still i cant connect to the network.

    ethtool eth0

    What i tried:
    - RedFlag 6.2 (linux distro) works with this card - using an old version of driver (r8168-8.009) and old kernel version ~2.6.27. On the newer version of the kernel I cant compile this old driver.
    - static network configuration does not help
    - other versions of the driver, which can compile a new kernel


    When i try compile old driver:

    I think my problem is " RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 01)" - old card. Any suggestions?

    Again, sorry for my English. I hope you understood my problem.
