rtl8169 gigabit ethernet

  5 years ago
  Realtek (Ethernet adapter)
  Mint (older version)
  Works partially
What doesn't work:

the network connectivity is choppy

What was done to make it work:

when you lost connection you just switch off and on again (in the tray menu connection icon) it will work for several minutes again
I just had to switch to the motherboard integrated ethernet adapter to fix this problem
