I don't know if I'm helping or just adding noise, but there's also a
realtek driver r8168, it seems. But someone from Realtek also commits
to kernel.org's r8169, it seems, so I don't understand why there are
two drivers. Beware, if you follow these instructions (which I haven't tried)
I don't know if non-free firmware will be loaded or what, I haven't
checked. It seems the last supported kernel by r8168 is 3.10 ?

This seems riskier than what Sam says, so please first follow Sam's advise.
