Hello, with the new ROG boards from ASUS - customers might also receive the ROG AREION 10Gbit PCIe networking card[1][2]. As per [1] it seems the card uses the "Aquantia AQtion(TM) AQC107 10Gb Ethernet Controller".

Currently the kernel (4.14.3) ships with this configuration:

$ ▶ zgrep AQUANTIA /proc/config.gz

Which does not include the AQUANTIA networking support by default, so it is not possible to use the network card as easy as in a plug-n-play manner. This change will imply setting CONFIG_AQTION=m as well.

Thanks in advance.
