PVE7 - R8169 kernel module crash

I just installed PVE on asua x455l laptop with i3 5010u cpu. Sadly it's not possible to use the built in ethernet adapter in PVE because the R8169 driver crashes immediately after boot. I realized that this is also happening in the setup environment.
Haven't had any problems with plain Debian before so don't know exactly what happened here.
Unfortunately, this is the only integrated network card so the device is essentially unusable as such...
Does anyone have a way to fix this error? Please help me?
- I only encounter this error in version 7.0 and above, but the 6.4 version I am using has absolutely no error.

I'm new to linux, this is the only error code I see on the proxmox screen
r8169 0000:02:00.0 enp2s0: rtl_erar_cond == 1 (loop: 100, delay: 100).
