Hello,
I've a problem with this driver: sometimes hit loads, stay up and then completly shutdown the eth(x) connection. Anyone with similar problems?

If you are talking about driver r8169, what Linux kernel version are you running? I used to have tons of problems with that driver, but everything seems to be fine since Linux 3.1.6 or so.

I have no idea, then. My r8169 chip worked perfectly with 12.04's kernel.

Maybe try a different ethernet cable or a different port from the switch. Beyond that, I have no idea.

Good luck.
