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.
