Also if you have Synaptic Package Manager installed you can search for r8168-dkms - some reviews I have seen said it helped
Seems that Buster was the last release of it - https://packages.debian.org/buster/all/r8168-dkms/download not listed under Bullseye - Debian must have truncated it - but it is listed in UbuntuWell I looked for 8168-dkms in Synaptic and it was not listed.

Well, trying to install the r8168.deb pkg didn't go well.
