[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


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.
