Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 432171
Realtek RTL8111/8168B driver won't work correct
Last modified: 2008-05-08 09:52:30 EDT
Description of problem:
RHEL 5.1 doesn't recognize the RTL8111/8168B onboard network Card.
RHEL 5.1 (kernel 2.6.18-53.el5) does not detect or configure this NIC.
On Fedora 8 with kernel 18.104.22.168-42.fc8 the kernel's r8169 driver correctly
identified and configured the on-board NIC.
Please backport the driver to RHEL.
