Realtek 8111H


New Member
I wish to have a desktop built with Linux Debian Buster as the operating system.

The motherboard I am thinking of has a Realtek 8111H as the lan controller.

However I understand that this controller has problems with Linux.

Can anyone help, please ?

I saw your post on Tom's.

What source is indicating compatibility issues with that? You could always roll an Intel NIC if you attempt and have issues.

I also have seen conflicting reports. As far as I can see the problem is with the r8169 driver,
which Linux seems to use. I don't know whether this bug has been fixed.

Someone has suggested an Intel EXP19301CTBLK PRO 1000 network card.

Are there any B450 motherboards that don't use Realtek 8111H ?
