I just purchased an Intel NUC and I'm preparing a kernel for it while waiting for delivery. The NIC is Realtek 8111HN (no PCI ID yet). Does anybody know what driver it needs?

Hey,

I'm not a driver freak, I searched a while but not found an actually driver for RTL8111HN for Linux only for Win$$$ . I read, that the driver for 8168 ist near by 8111. Perhaps this will bring success.



good day!

Buffoon,

Its probably r8169. It might need firmware. It might even need a recent kernel.
The PCI ID will tell all. Meanwhile, make r8169 as a loadable kernel module, then its no hardship to change.

That's a pretty new chipset. May not be a driver out for it yet.


Edit to add: The 8169 driver does some of the 8111* chips, even one 8111h but not 8111hn
Not sure if there is a difference.

There is no request in dmesg for firmware.

What about "ifconfig -a"?

Buffoon,

That means that none is required or its already in /lib/firmware.

I have a r8169 device that waits for firmware for 60 sec, then continues if its not provided.
That system net boots too, so not providing the firmware added 60 sec to the boot time.

Sorry if my post was misunderstood, the NIC is working. I just wanted to close the thread with a solution.

Thanks to everyone who responded!
