    Five minutes of research and I found this:

    It indicates that the board, although using an nForce 410 chipset, does NOT
    use NVIDIA ethernet, but (quote) "Relatek RTL8201CL external PHY"; you're
    probably trying the wrong driver and this is the source of the problem.

    This info could be wrong, but I thought it might help.
