    Finally I get it. I tell you

    This was the scenario in wich I worked:
    Code:
    Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller 
    kernel 2.6.21.5
    module r8169
    but with that config lspci returned:
    Code:
    Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev ff) (prog-if ff) !!! Unknown header type 7f
    And was unable to connect with the dhcp server. Netconfig didn't worked at all, and ifconfig returned:
    Code:
    Morphy documentation # ifconfig eth0
    eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:XX:C4:XX:XX:XX
              BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
              RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:2061255265 overruns:0 frame:0
              TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
              collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
              RX bytes:0 (0.0 b)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
              Interrupt:18 Base address:0x8000
    I downloaded r1868 from Realtek:
    Code:
    ftp://61.56.69.18/cn/nic/r8168-8.009.00.tar.bz2
    and added r8169 to blacklist
    Code:
    echo r8169 >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
    Rebooted and now that is what returns lspci:
    Code:
    07:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 02)
