Seems related to PHY issue. Is your rtl8169 connected to a gigabit or fast ethernet switch?

My rtl8168 only works with fast ethernet link, with gigabit link is not stable. Sounds related.

Is there anything i can do? Can i setup the link speed?

comment:4 by phoudoin, 13 years ago

No, the rtl8169 driver settings don't allow to set the link speed/mode currently. The only thing you can do is find a 100mbits switch/hub and see how it change things or not. For me, it does, and I should have report it sooner than later I guess (sorry guys, I totally forgot this issue).

To amend myself, I'll post ASAP my syslog with issue when used in gigabit mode, and the syslog when working fine in 100mbits mode.

I used a 100MBit switch and a 1000MBit switch. Doesn't work :(

Replying to jedie:

Guess the whole rtl8111/8168B PHY is not supported by the current state of our driver, then.

What link state report NetworkStatus replicant/deskbar? No Link or Ready? Did you check from within a Terminal window the command line "ifconfig -a" to see what's the actual IP settings applied to /dev/net/rtl8169/0 ?
