i have this card internet
r8169           : Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd.|RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller [NETWORK_ETHERNET] (rev: 03)
And with Mageia i did nt have any problem since yesterday that i dont have internet connexion

To be connected i have to execute this commande:
ethtool -s eth0 autoneg off

Before (mandriva) i had this setting:

i created this file:

with this content:
# turn off autonegotiation on the r8169 ethernet driver
install r8169 /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install r8169 && /usr/sbin/ethtool -s eth0 autoneg off

The problem is that now it does nt work and i have to run the command "ethtool -s eth0 autoneg off" manually

Is any other setting that i can to do have internet connexion on every boot, or to execute this command on boot
