I was using Windows 10 and decided to install Ubuntu, my internet works extremly slow. On Windows 10 it worked perfectly fine. edit:

    What is your "internet"? Wired, wireless or what?

Run in terminal

sudo apt-get install r8168-dkms

and reboot.

This will install another driver. It should work better.

  • One thing that might help, even though it's not driver related, is to change DNS settings. I've got my DNS set to Google DNS as primary, and as secondary. It's a noticeable improvement as far as loading time for webpages. Aug 13, 2015 at 2:35
  • @LukeFlip And what is in that make.log?

i don't think r8168-dkms compiles. Use solution from here, this one works fine, although you can not upgrade kernel without having to recompile. Somehow, it only worked for me if I compiled as root:

apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-`uname -r`
wget http://12244.wpc.azureedge.net/8012244/drivers/rtdrivers/cn/nic/0002-r8168-8.040.00.tar.bz2
sha256sum 0002-r8168-8.040.00.tar.bz2 
 --> da0444fcd7aabb7762310cdf2047fd0aeb7a9ed97a3d6b80d62a0fc71e0730bf  0002-r8168-8.040.00.tar.bz2
tar -xjf 0002-r8168-8.040.00.tar.bz2 
cd r8168-8.040.00/
sudo make
sudo make install

then you need to blacklist r8169, cross fingers and reboot
