I have two Asus AT3N7A-I motherboards. The on-board nic uses RTL8111/­8112 driver.

On the Asus Site I use the most current Bios. AT3N7A-I 0216 BIOS Dated 10//22/09
The exact same message show up with Ubuntu 1604 LTS and R8.4

Code:
dmesg
r8169 0000:03:00.0: can't disable ASPM; OS doesn't have ASPM control


So I setup a usb stick
http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/create-a-usb-stick-on-windows
and then the root password
http://askubuntu.com/questions/189907/what-is-the-default-root-password
and added a repository to find fwts
http://installion.co.uk/ubuntu/vivid/universe/f/fwts/install/index.html
then a added the package old school like back in the day
Code:
 sudo apt-get install fwts

after reading the askubuntu question about r8169 aspm, I ran
http://askubuntu.com/questions/372363/what-does-r8169-cant-disable-aspm-os-doesnt-have-aspm-control-really-mean
Code:
root@ubuntu:/home/ubuntu# sudo fwts aspm

Test 1 of 2: PCIe ASPM ACPI test.
PCIe ASPM is controlled by Linux kernel.

PASSED: Test 2, PCIe ASPM setting matched was matched.
WARNING: Test 2, RP 00h:15h.00h L0s not enabled.

ADVICE: The ASPM L0s low power Link state is optimized for short entry and exit
latencies, while providing substantial power savings. Disabling L0s of a PCIe
device may increases power consumption, and will impact the battery life of a
mobile system.


ADVICE: The ASPM L1 low power Link state is optimized for maximum power savings
with longer entry and exit latencies. Disabling L1 of a PCIe device may
increases power consumption, and will impact the battery life of a mobile system
significantly.

PASSED: Test 2, PCIe ASPM setting matched was matched.

I had the same problem on an old laptop, that being poor performance and linux using some module where the ethernet chipset name bore no resemblance to the kernel module name. Like an RTL8139 using an 8139too.ko module. Pretty good idea what to use in that situation. I spent a lot of time figuring out what was the correct driver module. I think using the wrong module might be the source of the problem. You have the RTL8112L chipset on your board (either version). It seems there are a lot of views on what is the correct driver is but the 8169 driver isn't mentioned a lot. What I finally did for my laptop was download the source from Realtek and compiled my own driver and used whatever Realtek thought was best. It worked better than any other solution. The good news is that the google can take you right to the source for the 8112L. The bad news is that it only supports up to kernel 3.X. But it wouldn't cost you anything but a little bit of time to try it. It might compile. It could happen. Or maybe small adjustments could be made in the source to fix compile errors. I have had problems compiling 3.X source on a 4.X system because of changes in the kernel source tree but it wouldn't hurt to try.

Also, in my case, firmware was part of the tar ball so I would expect so in your case. You also might have to fiddle around with files in /etc/modules.d.

There's always ndiswrapper. :roll:

FWIW. This advice and 2 dollars can get you a cup of coffee.
