Thanks for the link. The 1GB RAM model is considerably more expensive than the R2S (US$45 vs US$22). I was guessing it would've been around the $40 mark.
I'm curious about how hot the R4S will run but it looks like another sleek metal case from Friendlyelec. @mj82 I'll be up for testing in mid-Jan
The correct mainline driver for this hardware is indeed r8169, if that has problems with this specific hardware revision, those need to be fixed - the vendor module has no future in mainline nor OpenWrt. There is no systemic reason why the mainline r8169 module wouldn't work, I'm successfully using it with very good performance results on several different (r8168 based-) devices (x86_64).
I'm getting some error's. Are you positive that your patch works?
