Can someone tell me what's wrong here? The firmware is where it should be.
Code:
[   10.681670] r8169 0000:02:00.0 eth0: Invalid action 0x50595443
[   10.681685] r8169 0000:02:00.0 eth0: unable to load firmware patch rtl_nic/rtl8168h-2.fw (-22)

did you build the driver as built in or as a module? (If you built the driver in, you also need to build the firmware into the kernel too.)

It is built as module.

Jaglover,

Do you have /lib/firmware/rtl_nic/rtl8168h-2.fw ?

Neddy,

I certainly do, the error (-22) is not the same as not found (-2). I suspect the error in dmesg has something to do with it.

you might also just disable the firmware, my previous m/b nic was using a r8169 too but the card was running fine without any firmware.
i know many users report trouble with r8169 cards, but it seems not all cards are totally buggy.

Thanks for replies, I've switched to out of kernel r8168 driver as workaround.
