Post firmware: failed to load rtl_nic/rtl8168g-2.fw (-2)


Hello.
I installed Jessie X64 on my system but I got below error when my system boot :

[ 14.390311] r8169 0000:03:00.0: firmware: failed to load rtl_nic/rtl8168g-2.fw (-2)
[ 14.390325] r8169 0000:03:00.0: Direct firmware load failed with error -2
[ 14.390326] r8169 0000:03:00.0: Falling back to user helper
[ 14.390589] r8169 0000:03:00.0 eth1: unable to load firmware patch rtl_nic/rtl8168g-2.fw (-12)


My Motherboard model is "Asus B85 Plus". Debian detected my NIC but why firmware error?

Thank you.

I went to packages.debian.org and search on packages in jessie containing that firmware file. This is the result:

https://packages.debian.org/search?s...=rtl8168g-2.fw

Next I searched duckduckgo for the keywords "debian" and the package name I found on packages.debian.org

https://duckduckgo.com/?q=debian+firmware-realtek

This revealed two very relevant links to the Debian wiki - one for the realtek driver in question and another page on firmware. Plus many forums posts relating to the same problem.
