Linux Zen kernel internet not working

ok I’m having a slight problem after trying to install & use the Linux Zen kernel, namely I have no internet connection, it seems to not detect my network card at all
I found this thread:

But the solutions there don’t seem to work for me, but I might be doing something wrong.

As far as I can tell I have the r8168 driver installed,
Sudo isntall -S dhcpcd
as instructed in the above thread generates an error about a missing operand.

any help is appreciated

Remove r8168 package then reboot

Your ethernet will start working

You should not use r8168

With kernels other than linux


Wow!! Super fast response, worked like a charm thank you!!!
