but it appears r8169 is already working at you. Note that this is your wired ethernet. Your wireless has nothing to do with r8169 vs r8168.
Maybe I am wrong or I have received bad information from other sites. Let me explain what the problem is: my WIFi connection works perfectly, but I have a problem with my WIRED ethernet connection: I got the error message "wired connection disconnected". It looks like my ethernet chip of my motherboard (an Asus P6T) is sont recognized by Mint.
I have been told to follow the procedure at the begining of this topic: is the thing to do for you or do you have another idea ? if you recommend me to continue, then I will perform the "sudo make install" command that you have suggested, if not I will do not nothing unless crying because I cannot use by wired ethernet connection ! (to date I got no answer on the other forums to sove this pb).
Thank for your advice,
