there can be a lot of reason for that
first, i want to tell you I haven't IGP on my motherboard : it's a nforce2-400ultra (maybe the igp can give problems, i don't know)
I use acpi, but I disable apic
and I use test2-mm1 (maybe the mm1 patch is the reason why it works for me)
to install the nvnet driver, i get the nforce2 tarball on nvidia web site
I decompress then go to the nvnet source tree (nforce/nvnet)
I patch it : patch -p1 < /the/path/to/nvnet.2.5-1.diff
then install it with "make && make install"
try with the last version off nvnet, you shouldn't have any problem (I hope)
ps : my network is statically configured
about the cpu utilization, I notice nothing strange
to get the mm1 patch, it's here :
