View Full Version : [ubuntu] D-Link DGE-528T recognised but not working

Hi Everyone

I have looked at loads of forums to try to solve this issue but none seem to have given a working solution to my problem.

I'm having problems trying to get Ubuntu 8.02 (32bit) to recognise my D-Link DGE-528T as a network adapter (Wired).

Unlike some problems it seems (looking at the dmesg output) that my network card is being recognised:

r8169 Gigabit Ethernet driver 2.2LK loaded

But then it all goes wrong on next next two lines:

r8169 0000:00:0c.0: could not request regions

r8169: probe of 0000:00:0c.0 failed with error - 16

I'm not sure what that means.

Any ideas?

My motherboard is a Gigbyte GA-71xE4

I've tried to install the drivers but they are for kernal version 2.4 so a bit out of date (and won't run anyway)?

Also it has been noted on one of the document pages that the network card gets recogised automatically without any need for drivers.

Here is some other info to help diagnose what could be wrong:

lshw -C network

I also do not have the file:


Thanks in advance

I have set an Ubuntu LTSP server with the same network card (D-link DGE-528T). It's working for some time and then its disconnecting and all my network crashes. One friend told me that it uses the realtek chip that has many issues. I solve my problem by buying a new card. If you find anything let us know.
