Looks like we will be able to toggle ASPM on or off for this driver via sysfs, pending a patch due in kernel 5.5 (

I try to install this driver...

just tested r8168 from the official repos. I've forced aspm=1 via a modprobe.d config, and power managemnt works fine. I can get into PC8, and my up/down speeds are not affected like they are when I use this driver.

Sadly, my down/uploading speeds were cut in half. I'm barely getting 40Mbps with this driver

Great. Now my system can get into PC8 (it could only do PC3 in PowerTOP with the built in driver)

Thanks a lot
