RTL8111DL ethernet is UP but not RUNNING

Bug Description

After a lot of effort trying to get this working, I am not sure where to go from here.
Hardware is the ASRock G41M-LE with the Realtek RTL8111DL gigabit ethernet.

I have tried configuring the interface(eth0) with dhcp and static address in /etc/network.
I can ping the loopback ( as well as the static IP I assign (e.g.
However no connection to any other IP (router, etc). The dhcp exchange times out with no DHCPOFFER received. I can get the interface to show UP BROADCAST MULTICAST, but I do not see RUNNING like my other machines.
mii-tool -v shows: SIOCGMIIPHY on 'eth0' failed: Operation not supported

One strange thing is lspci -vv shows the Realtek ethernet entry, but the kernel module listed at the bottom is r8169. I think this should be the r8168 module? Can anyone help?
