[cut litany of realtek woes. also complaint that external card won't
fit in the case.]
My Gigabyte board (ga-p35-ds3r) has a realtek on it. It never worked
right. It would randomly not come back up after a reboot. I dug up
an old 3com 3c905b which works just fine for my home network.
Unfortunately, nearly all motherboards seem to have this crap realtek
chip. I guess this doesn't actually help you. I just wanted to let
you know that you are not alone in suffering realtek.
Does anyone have these things working reliably?
