The Acenic driver has worked very well (and is part of the 2.2 kernel
package) when running on our NetGear GA-620 cards... These cards are really
well priced (Nortel is trying to sell their gigabit switches by eating the
loss on the card), and have been stable thus far. Currently I am running
some performance tests on them and a few other cards (GNICI and II,
SysKonnect, GigaNet), and they look like a good price-preformance tradeoff.
