[ubuntu] Realtek PHY RTL8201EL

Has anyone had any luck getting the integrated LAN Realtek RTL8201EL chip to work?



Linux seems to see the chip, as evidenced by this:



[ 1.025386] forcedeth: Reverse Engineered nForce ethernet driver. Version 0.64.



from dmesg



and



00:07.0 Bridge [0680]: NVIDIA Corporation MCP61 Ethernet [10de:03ef] (rev a2)



from lspci -nn



And it has an eth0 entry in ifconfig, complete with the chip's MAC address, however whenever I try to connect using the chip it just keeps working and working, trying to establish a DHCP connection but eventually timing out, according to /var/log/syslog.
