Realtek RTL8169/8110 Family Gigabit Ethernet NIC is a network device that supports fast data transfer that is compliant with IEEE 802.3 fast media access control and Ethernet transceiver. It also supports with PCI controller for 32-bit systems and has built in memory. This device connects computers to network using category three or five cables to give them speeds of 10, 100 or 1000 megabytes per second. Beside this, it can automatically detect and correct common networking issues like cable polarity, data errors, cable crosstalk and data transfer speeds Realtek RTL8169/8110 Family Gigabit Ethernet NIC also supports power management for 10/100 Mbps Ethernet enables it perform functions such as remote wake up and management of computer in collaboration with the operating systems. This device supports virtual LAN and can also verify IP, TCP or even UDP data segments using Microsofts NDIS5.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
The Realtek RTL8169/8110 Family Gigabit Ethernet NIC is a Microsoft compatible device with drivers that work on 32 and 64 bit computer systems. It has a transceiver that is compliant with base 10/100/1000 Ethernet standards. Realtek RTL8169/8110 Family Gigabit Ethernet NIC also supports PCI 2.2 interface that is essential for power management functions such as correction of polarity for swapped cable and remote support and wake up. It supports full duplex flow control and virtual LAN that can be altered by flashing or updating the network erasable memory. Realtek RTL8169/8110 Family Gigabit Ethernet NIC also supports the FIFO (8k/64k) scheme for receiving and sending data. This network device has features that improve overall system performance since it utilizes less CPU resources for verifying information and virtual LAN operations. It also supports single and multiple memory line read when sending data plus writing and checking received information that enhances it performance when used together with memory buffer DAC commands it supports. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Realtek RTL8169/8110 Family Gigabit Ethernet NIC errors before installing any driver updates.
