and,

Code:
Linux madnotebook 3.2.0-gentoo #1 SMP Wed Jan 4 19:53:00 PST 2012 x86_64 Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T6500 @ 2.10GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux



I'm trying to compile the Realtek driver
Code:
r8101-1.021.00
.

The said driver compiles fine with kernel 3.1.6 and below but nothing else. Here is what I am seeing:

Code:
make

The reason I prefer this driver is because the "built-in" r8169 that also works doesn't perform as well. I'm talking max throughput of ~ 45-50 mbps vs. the 70-75 mbps with the new driver. Thanks for any help:)

I have the same problem, except that the r8169 doesn't work at all for me (I can assign an ip etc. but the link won't come up).

The r8169 module works with kernel 3.6.11, but I am having problems after upgrading the kernel. Have you been able to solve the issue?

Cheers!

Update: it works with kernel 3.5.7 but now with 3.6.11
