Like everyone else i'm also having trouble with the RTL8111 Ethernet controller. It's not working at all on Ubuntu x64 (tried with 12.04.03 and 13.10).

This is my card:

lspci -nnk | grep -i net -A2
05:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller [10ec:8168] (rev 06)
    Subsystem: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd Motherboard [1458:e000]
    Kernel driver in use: r8168

EDIT: I tested it with following amd64 versions:

Mint 16          | Kernel 3.11 | r8169 & r8168 not working
Debian 7.2       | Kernel 3.2  | r8169 & r8168 not working
Ubuntu 13.10     | Kernel 3.11 | r8169 & r8168 not working
Ubuntu 12.04.3   | Kernel 3.8  | r8169 & r8168 not working
Ubuntu 12.04.2   | Kernel 3.5  | r8169 & r8168 not working
Ubuntu 12.04.0   | Kernel 3.2  | r8169 & r8168 not working
Ubuntu 11.10     | Kernel 3.0  | r8169 & r8168 not working
Debian 6.0.7     | Kernel 2.6  | r8169 working fine, r8168 working fine
Ubuntu 10.04.4   | Kernel 2.6  | r8169 working with known problems, r8168 working fine
Smos1.2 (Debian) | Kernel 2.6  | r8169 working with known problems, r8168 working fine

Conclusion: The rev 06 of RTL8111/8168 is not working above AMD64 Kernel 2.6

It works with ALL i386 kernels!

It didn't work with ndiswrapper on amd64.

Old post:

I blacklisted the driver r8169 and installed 8.036.00 over dkms based on this post by praseodym I also tried the 037.deb package from launchpad with no luck

I tried static ip's / dhcp but the connection isn't working.

I'd like to offer a small BTC Donation like 0.03 BTC for a working solution because i need this fixed asap.

Here's a list of infos and logs:

I have a working PCI Lan-Card (eth1) installed over which i can connect to the Internet. But eth0 isn't even connected to the router, i can't ping it. Others also have that problem, check the thread i just posted. They haven't found a solution yet –  5andr0 Dec 29 '13 at 19:53
    
There's no space for that stupid old pci lan card and i have multiple rigs with the same motherboard where i need this fixed + others would also like to see a fix –  5andr0 Dec 29 '13 at 19:57
    
I'd have to change motherboards because this is an onboard lan controller error. But that's the only affordable board with 6 pci-express slots with no alternatives. So it has to be fixed :/ –  5andr0 Dec 29 '13 at 19:59
    
@5andr0 Same problem... askubuntu.com/questions/398050/… .... I tested on i386 kernels also not work –  Ask Jan 1 at 12:33
