Change the network card, period. I have a laptop with an R8168 and
even using kernel 2.6.25 the card just suddenly stops working. If I do
an rsync on a LAN, the card holds up to 300mb of data transfer and
stops working again. I always have to reboot. No errors, nothing. I
have seen many people complaining about this card on the IRC channel
too.
