I recently got my nForce ethernet card to work on iATKOS L2 (I copied IONetworkingFamily.kext and nForceLAN.kext from an S3 install and patched with Kext Utility). Let me explain: before, web pages wouldn't load but in System Prefs it'd tell me that I was connected, and it even gave me my LAN IP (10.0.0.12-- but it wouldn't let me connect to the router settings site, 10.0.0.1)-- keep in mind that iATKOS L2 doesn't even advertise to have an nForce ethernet driver in the first place-- and it was really frustrating. So you can imagine how annoying it was to have the network stop working randomly (by stop working I mean it wouldn't load any web sites but it still said I was connected in System Prefs).

Anyone else having the same problem?

tl;dr: my nForce ethernet driver stopped connecting to the internet after a short amount of time while still telling me I was connected.

I'm on 10.7.2, but I'll try it anyway.

Ok, it works, but kernel panics a lot, during the update to 10.7.3. I'll try to find an offline version of the update to install, and try then.
