"gigabyte onboard ethernet" tell us nothing about what the card really is.
These days, everyone make network cards, but you can be sure that if you buy a "asus" (as example) network card, there not a single piece in that card made by asus. The important point is the chipset it uses...

If you don't know the exact model of the card, use the command "lspci" to get some information about the PCI devices, assuming your network card is on the PCI bus, it will tell us what chipset it uses, and so what driver (module) you need.
