Add 4 ports gbe RTL8111h linux driver to openwrt

HI there,

I have an x86 pc installed openwrt and realtek rtl8111h 4 ports ethernet nic on pcie. The device was detected. but have some strange behavior. The link is always down. and the nic was detected as r8169 when I checked on dmesg.

Then, to make sure the device was working. i have installed ubuntu 22.04, the nic was running well. also on windows 10 the nic is working well.

My question is, Can I add linux driver to openwrt? If can, any links or tutorial to do that.


r8169 appears to be the correct driver.

Did you enable the ports? You at least need to add a "interface" with protocol "unmanaged" (or add them to a bridge) in order to bring them up


Thank you, now its work.
