The NIC on my machine seems to be supported as well as I can tell after this simple patch that enables the additional device id to the rtl8169 driver.

I'm not sure if the device id my card uses was specifically excluded because of some incompatibilites or not, but I would assume the card NIC wasn't available at the time the author wrote the driver.

The currently supported device ids of the driver are 0x8167 & 0x8169, this patch allows 0x8168 as well.

Your patch is actually not correct as it would accept any Realtek device (you would need to replace
with &&). Anyway I've changed the driver to accept 0x8168 as well, now. Thanks!

Fixed in hrev24062.
