Question r8169 0000:05:00:0 (Unregistered net dev


Hi guys i recently installed debian and i have 2 network card. the onboard card is being recognised by the system; the other a dlink DGE-528T BI is not active. On startup of the server its giving me the error (r8169 0000:05:00:0 (Unregistered net dev)) and when i ran update-initramfs -u, give"W Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/rtl_nic/rtl8168f-1.fw for module r8169"

i used wget to get the frmware-nonfree_0.36+wheezy.1.tar.gz and used tar xvf package.tar.gz to unpack it into tmp folder.
now the problem is to install the required drivers, how do i do it?

below is wat i have done and errors i got:

I would rather try to download and install this package: https://packages.debian.org/squeeze/firmware-realtek
apt-get install firmware-realtek

so download the package from the link I gave and dpkg --install <packagefile>.deb. Or you need to edit /etc/apt/sources.list, you need to add the non-free repo
