Update NIC driver Realtek R8169

    • OMV 2.x
    • Update NIC driver Realtek R8169

      How do I update the driver realtek? After a few minutes that I transfer data, OMV will no longer be seen from the network either through ping.
      The mainboard ASRock Q1900DC-ITX, LAN RTL8111GR using the r8169 driver.
      Can someone please help me?
      Thanks

      I dealt w/ that NIC and it's various problems for over a year, before finally just buying an Intel card. I did all the tutorials, upgrading the driver, configuration changes, etc.... none of it worked. Realtek's Linux support just sucks royally.. there's really no other way around it.

      I know it's not what you asked, but take it from a voice of experience.. Assuming you have a slot available, save yourself the headache and buy an Intel card. If I didn't have a slot available, I'd honestly buy a new motherboard with an Intel chipset.
      Air Conditioners are a lot like PC's... They work great until you open Windows.
