Interesting. I'm writing this from a laptop running SUSE 10.1 with a Realtek 8139. Works just fine under Linux. So I'm a little surprised that you're having problems. Do you have any troubleshooting error messages?

OK, you say you followed some instructions. How about cutting-n-pasting them here, along with the URLs where you found them.

<Linux device driver for Realtek Ethernet controllers>

  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)

<Requirements>

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



<Quick install with proper kernel settings>

  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




<Force Media Speed>

 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.



<Advanced feature>

  - Supports Jumbo Frame
  - Hardware Tx/Rx flow control
