ESXi – No network adapter

Hi everybody. Happy new year to everyone. I had this network card Realtek that is not supported by VMWare. I’ve browsed the internet for a solution, which exist, but includes scripting, which I’m not so good at. So my plea in this new year is, does anyone has already made an iso image which includes net55-r8168-8.045a-napi-offline_bundle for Realtek network cards drivers? If so, would that someone be so kind and send me a link to download it from somewhere? Thanks in advance!

  1. 1. Get a proper intel NIC if possible, just to save yourself the headache.

    2. Do it yourself, it really really really isn’t that hard. I’ve done it, and I couldn’t write a script to save my life.

    3. If I still had the iso on hand, I’d help you out, but I don’t.

  2. I had a similar issue with my ssd on vsphere 6.7 and had to replace the driver called nvme from 6.5 onto the 6.7 ( just copy, paste, and overwrite on iso). Drove me nuts for like a week. You might want to try doing something similar for the nic drivers.
