Failure to configure wired connection with Realtek 8111E on board LAN controller.

I'm trying to test my new desktop system for compatibility before
installing anything on it. The system has ASUS P8P67 LGA1155 Sandy Bridge
B3 Motherboard with Realtec 8111E Gigabit LAN controller on board.

I've tried Ubuntu 9.10 and 10.10 LiveCDs. Neither of them cannot
configure wired network connection automatically. Tried to google and
from what I read, it seems this controller is supposed to be supported by
latest kernels and to work out of box.

The problem is I cannot even be sure whether I have a faulty controller
or I am misinterpreted some info and this controller requires some
additional work to be done to make it connected.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.
