rmmod not working properly?


Hey guys, I found out about the fix for Realtek's r8111/8168b controller so I tried sudo rmmod on the r8169 driver/module/thingy. After that I checked using lsmod and it wasn't there in the list anymore, so I decided to reboot before doing anything else. As soon as I rebooted and used lsmod, r8169 popped up again. Tried the whole thing again and it was still there after rebooting. Can someone explain to me why this happened and how I fix it? I'm on Ubuntu 12.04.3 now BTW. Thanks in advance.

insmod and rmmod are only temporary, it's working exactly like it's supposed to.
