Question nvnet driver for 2.6.4

Help!!

Can some one let me know where i can find a patch to make the nvnet driver source from the nforce unified driver package compatible with a 2.6.4 Kernel! (I am using 2.6.4-ck1 atm)

Or can nvidia PLEASE release a driver for the 2.6.* series, We can get the agp, ide, and sound from other places, but not the network card.

I have tried the forcedeth driver, but it is SHOCKINGLY bad.
menuconfig said it was experimental, but it said nothing about being this bad

At the moment, this is that last time I am ever going to buy an nforce based Mother Board, I mean it is good, but driver support isn't up to scratch, and nvidia have always been good with drivers.

Thanks

I'm sorry, but did you read my post?

There is a lot of lag. ie. when I click on a link, it takes about half a minute for the title of the webpage to come up, never mind the content.

It takes about the same amount of time to get an IP from my smoothwall box, that usually takes just a few seconds, and every other computer here, takes just a few seconds to get its IP.

For me, the forcedeth driver is awful. I have tried both throughput optimization, and cpu optimization, no difference.
