I'm in the same boat with an Abit NFM2 which also has a Realtek RTL8211BL.


Since it's an nforce chipset, you need to start with the forcedeth network drivers.

It's an option on the Kalyway install under network drivers.


Or do a search for forcedeth and get the latest one.


While the board may use a marvel or realtek ethernet chip for the physical connection, there is still a nvidia layer to go through.


There's no guarantee that the forcedeth kext will work stable (or at all) and I'm seeing most folks just install a supported nic adapter instead of using the onboard one.


I'm giving it a shot though and still working it out for my board.

Give it a try.
