I had an issue with my realtek network drivers and r8168. So I followed many guides on how to fix this and I installed and compiled the latest drivers from realtek, however, in the end I still had the same issues. My problem now is that the driver is totally screwed somehow. I tried re-installing it, tried taking in on and off the blacklist but it seems nothing I try works.
So I need a way to completely reinstall and reconfigure the network in ubuntu. If I can uniinstall the network component (Lan cable / ipv4) and reinstall it that would be great.
Any ideas ?
bte - I'm using a 3G connection for the meanwhile.
