Take a look at VMware Front Experience: vSphere 6 is GA: The ultimate guide to upgrade your white box to ESXi 6.0 to find out what's required to add such drivers to ESXi 6.0.

Were you able to get the proper driver for this?

I loaded 6.7 and it didn't recognize my Realtek 8111C.

FWIW: Motherboard is GA-MA770-DS3 Rev2.0

Not sure if I should continue looking for a driver that will work for 6.7 or just get something like a TP-Link PCI card for which there is a driver available.
