Ok Ive got the solution for this problem.
Try another MAC address and all trouble goes away.

When you do ifconfig eth0 you see something like:
HWaddr 01:23:45:67:89:ab

This is wrong because this is an broadcast/multicast address.

So change it to maybe 00:02:03:04:05:06
with the command :

ifconfig eth0 hw ether 00:02:03:04:05:06

after doing the modprobe or insmod.

This seems to be a BIOS bug. (Ive to bug ASUS about it i think)

I only solved this because someone wrote the first open source driver to find under (this is alpha code !):

And they told me what to do.

Asked nvidia about it they newer answered. As you can see open source sometimes rulez
