nforce packet losses

I'm installing linux on a computer with the nforce network chip on it, and I've been having GREAT difficulty getting the network up and running smoothly. I just installed debian linux on this computer and updated to kernel 2.4.26.

With this kernel, I've tried both drivers for the network card (nvnet provided by NVIDIA and the reverse-engineered forcedeth). With either of these drivers, I get the same problem: an approximate 85% packet loss.

I'm pretty sure I have everything configured correctly for a client connecting to the internet via a school residential network. Anyone have any ideas for what's going on? I have no clue what to do now.

It seems to be losing packets at random, only able to get very few through usually for short periods of time.
