    RTL 8111/8168B + 9.10/10.04 = Hell on earth?

    Is RTL 8111/8186B network card (integrated on the motherboard) NOT supported by Ubuntu?

    It finds it when I do lshw -C network.. as RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller

    But the driver it chooses to use is: r8169...

    Is that the reason for this messup?

    didnt they talk about fixing this 5 months ago? I recall reading about it..

    But, alas, it didnt work.. and now the NIC is behaving rEALLY weird.. its blinking slowly orange all the time.. seems dead..

    I really hope Ubuntu havent destroyed my integrated Network card =( I didnt think it possible, but I guess it is..
