I really could use some help. I am quite new to this and I am officially completely lost here. I have been searching the web for a few hours now to no avail.

I am running Ubuntu 12.10 and I have installed a D-Link DGE-530T to go along with the new high speed modem that was just installed in the house. Since I am on the internet I am assuming that I am using default drivers. My speed is maxed out at 7 mbit. In my Windows 7 boot it is at 20Mbit.

I have downloaded the latest drivers and unzipped them to a folder on my desktop

I have the following linux instructions but have absolutely no clue what they mean or how to do them. Is there anyone that can give me a hand and guide me through this step by step?

This is the Linux device driver released for RealTek Ethernet controllers, which are listed as following. 1. RTL8169S/SB/SC (Gigabit Ethernet with PCI interface) 2. RTL8168B (Gigabit Ethernet with PCI-Express interface) 3. RTL8101E (Fast Ethernet with PCI-Express interface)

  • kernel source tree (supported versions 2.4.x or 2.6.x)
  • compiler/binutils for kernel compilation

Unpack the tarball : unzip r1000_linuxdrv_vxx.zip

Change to the directory: cd r1000

If you are running the target kernel, then you should be able to do :

make clean modules  (as root or with sudo)
make install
depmod -a

The media can be forced to one of the 5 modes as follows.

    Cmd: "insmod r1000 media = SET_MEDIA"
    For example:
     "insmod r1000 media = 0x04" will force PHY to operate in 100Mpbs Half-duplex.

     SET_MEDIA can be:
            _10_Half        = 0x01
            _10_Full        = 0x02
            _100_Half       = 0x04
            _100_Full       = 0x08
            _1000_Full      = 0x10

Force media type for multiple cards could be performed as:

     "insmod r1000 media=0x04,0x10"

which force PHY to operate at 100Mbps half-duplex and 1000Mbps full-duplex.

  • Supports Jumbo Frame
  • Hardware Tx/Rx flow control

Thank you very much.
