[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?
