  Fresh Ubuntu 18.04 install uses wrong Realtek wired network driver.

Bug description:
  Hi there,

  Installing Ubuntu 18.04 on my newish laptop which contains a Realtek
  8168 NIC seems to use the r8169 driver by default, and should use the
  r8168 in order to work properly. To fix, I removed or blocked the 8169
  driver, installed the 8168 driver and then reconfigured NetworkManager
  - which was quite difficult for a new user like me. I've included
  details from my system since I addressed the issue yesterday.

  Please let me know if there's anything I can do to help more.
