Not a single thing happens.

oh, it sounds like you don't have any driver installed now. Try reinstalling the driver you downloaded, did you get any errors when you ran the installer? I'm not logged into my ubuntu install right now, otherwise I could be more helpful.

Here's another thread on the Ubuntu Forums, although it's basically the same info.

go to /lib/modules/Your-Kernel/kernel/drivers/net, and see if you have r8168.ko in there, if not, copy it in there, blacklist the r8169 driver, and reboot.

How do I know which module folder to choose? There is 4 different "generic" folders to choose from.

those are your different kernels, choose whichever one you are currently booting into. Probably the latest one (highest number).

So I choose the highest one and it turns out there isn't a file inside with the r8168. BUT, I don't have permission to copy and paste the file into the net folder.

sudo cp /location/of/r8168.ko / /lib/modules/Your Kernel/kernel/drivers/net/r8168.ko

after you copy the r8168.ko file, run:

sudo depmod
sudo modprobe r8168

for good measure, then reboot.

I'm still pretty noobish at Linux, so this is kind of like the blind leading the blind I think. If you still have problems, I would start a thread over at the Ubuntu forums, as you may get more responses.

If this is a new install, or one you haven't used much, it could be a good time to give Linux Mint 12 a try. I like it quite a bit, I like the new desktop environment Cinnamon quite a bit, and all my hardware worked correctly out of the box. Good luck with your Ubuntu install though, if you get it working correctly I would still recommend checking out Cinnamon, you can install it on Ubuntu, and IMO it's much nicer than Unity, if you are using a newer version of Ubuntu, I guess I don't know which version you are using.
