[SOLVED] Problems with Realtek RTL8168C/8111C
I am on the verge of giving up, please help!
My Realtek ethernet card sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. I have a dual boot system with Ubuntu 8.04.1 64bit and with WinXP. More often than not when I start Ubuntu, the ethernet card is not recognised properly by the r8169 driver. The output from lshw says, among other things
product: ILLEGAL VENDOR ID
vendor: ILLEGAL VENDOR ID
and no IP address after "configuration:"
What could be the reason? I have read elsewhere that this problem occurs only with dual booting and is usually solved by telling Windows to enable wake-on-lan but it didn't solve the problem for me.
Does anybody have any ideas? Thanks very much in advance!
