I just installed a new motherboard after my old one broke, which this new gigabyte motherboard uses the same ethernet driver as my old mobo (r8168). For some reason my internet connection is 1/4 the speed it should be. I have tried to find a solution online but the problem is that the solutions require me to have Gigabyte’s windows only tools/drivers installed. Does anyone have an idea on how to fix this issue?

enable IOMMU in the original BIOS may solve some problems on this board.#
for more help w need some more specs:
lspci > specs.txt && echo ----- >> specs.txt && lsusb >> specs.txt && echo ----- >> specs.txt && journalctl -b -1 >> specs.txt && cat specs.txt | curl -F [email protected] https://ptpb.pw/
and give the link it produces
you can try this:
Or first if do not need it disable IPV6 .

So I installed r8168-dkms and disabled r8169 even though I have done it before since my old motherboard had the same issue just to make sure. After restarting I had no internet connection so I had to download the r8168 package on another pc and then reinstalled it and then restarted. The connection is back now but still slower than it should be. I disabled IPV6 and the speed is still the same.
yaourt r8168 echo "blacklist r8169" > /etc/modprobe.d/r8169_blacklist.conf
is what you try?
i just see that there is also community/r8168 package…
But if you want to have no problems with speed i would promise it would be the best to get another card and disable this one complete…
