We can see
02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B
PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 01)
Change the network card, period. I have a laptop with an R8168 and
even using kernel 2.6.25 the card just suddenly stops working. If I do
an rsync on a LAN, the card holds up to 300mb of data transfer and
stops working again. I always have to reboot. No errors, nothing. I
have seen many people complaining about this card on the IRC channel
I don't know if it is the chipset in general, or that the manufacturers that
use these chips skimp on cache memory, but I have always had less than stellar
performance with realtek cards.

You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
