comment Changing kernel driver from wl to b43
Isn't your device working as expected with the wl driver? May we address those issues? My answer was intended to be a bit humorous, not sarcastic. If it was sarcastic, I apologize.

Is this within a virtual machine? Virtualbox or similar? Networking is usually a virtual bridge to the host machine's network.

Does it come to life if you insert the module? sudo modprobe iwlwifi? Or does this produce an error? If so, please edit your question to add the exact wording of the error.

comment getting error when inserting driver module
It certainly is possible. Which module is loaded? r8169, r8168 or both? lsmod. Which version did you compile? r8168-xx-what??

comment getting error when inserting driver module
Did you reboot? Is the module loaded then? lsmod | grep r81 Does it disconnect even with the new module?

comment getting error when inserting driver module
"Can't read private key" in this context, is trivial. It will not keep the module from working as expected. Does it?
