Linux support for Realtek switches

Realtek has developed multiple generations of networking SoCs. An SDK is provided by Realtek for managed switches built on these platforms, but of course we can do better by developing actual mainline Linux support. This wiki gathers documentation on the SoCs, the switches they are implemented in, and the drivers written to support these devices.

Development is performed (mostly) on commercially available switches:

Specific parts of the hardware are documented on more detailed pages:

Interested in helping with the development, or looking for other ways to contribute? You can find us on #rtl83xx on Be sure to say hi and stick around for a while (we're not always very active).
