nvidia's driver forcedeth (nforce ethernet) is reverse engineered.
It's not the best.
skge I believe is the Marvell/SysKonnect gigabit ethernet driver. I
think Stephen Hemminger wrote the driver with docs provided under NDA.
Even still, I think he mentioned it was a difficult driver to
implement and others have also had problems with it.
not sure why you have both modules loaded. Maybe one wraps the other.
If you continue to have problems with these then try an Intel pci-e or
pci-x gigabit nic for eth0.
