I've measured good performance with Intel E1000 and Marvell 88E8xxx parts using jumbo packets in gigE LANs. While reviewing MOBOs I see that a very high fraction now use Realtek 8111 or 8168/8169 family parts. There seem to be driver issues and perhaps performance issues with the Realtek parts,but it's difficult to say without some testing.
I have recently built a computer with LAN chipset Realtek 8111E, and installed Ubuntu 12.04. I am connected to the Internet via a wired connection, but it is currently not detecting any wireless networks. After downloading and installing a driver from Realtek's website, it still doesn't work. Can anyone help?
Segítséget kérnék abban hogy telepíthetõ fel a Realtek szoftvere Realtek mûködik minden hang a laptopomon csak a mikrofon erõsítést nem érem el, ami nagyon hiányzik mert Skype-on nem hallanak.
Seeing the frustration many seem to experience with WiFi drivers (including myself), I thought it important to post the results of my effort. I tried all of the publicly available drivers I could find. Nothing worked. A simple email to Realtek support via their website fixed the problem. I sent the Version, kernel, and card information.
