Output of lspci:

Code:

...
03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 03)
...


I've tried to modprobe the 8139cp, 8139too, and the r8169, none seems to have worked.

Bigun

Code:
modprobe r8169
is correct.

What shows in
Code:
 ifconfig -a
after the modprobe ?
you should have an ethX but X may not be 0

That's it Neddy, I linked net.lo to the proper device name and I was in business.
