Proper way to change network moduel in boot

I recently swapped my motherboard and CPU with shockingly amazing results. However, the network device on the motherboard requires a different module, r8169. I’ve tried placing a file with just the text r8169 in /etc/modules-load.d/r8169.conf as described in the arch wiki, but it seems I still need to run

sudo modprobe r8169

to get my LAN connection to recognize.

What would be the proper way to make sure I am loading the new module at the best time in the boot process? Would it be worth looking into blacklisting the old module so there are no conflicts?

Thanks all for the help!

Have a look here:

Hope this helps!

Thank you for the quick reply. It looks like that package was installed and causing the issues. Removing r8168 to let it default to r8169 and everything works!
