Can you boot some well-designed universal Linux, like SystemRescueCD (can be installed to USB stick) and see if the NIC works there.

Time to contact Intel tech support then.

Going into guessing mode now. There is a bunch of PHY drivers in kernel, I usually leave them disabled, but in this case you may need one.

Edit: Also make sure all conditions mentioned here are met.

Okay well thanks for the heads up - I will send Intel Support an email tomorrow.

What do you think about the idea of simply buying a PCI Network Card? We only have 2 onboard NICs (+ the IPMI Port - which works perfectly fine). So replacing the 2 onboard NICs with a 2 port PCI LAN Adapter shouldn't be too expensive. We don't need 10G or anything fancy. Just half height to fit in a 2U Server Case.

Up to you. I checked amazon and they have Intel PRO/1000 Pt Dual Port Server Adapter for $55. Depending on where you can buy from it should be in this price range. I strongly suggest Intel NIC.

Ok thanks for the suggestion - I will post back here if I hear anything constructive from Intel, but otherwise I think I will just buy the network card and save the hassle

Don't rush. Intel may have their own driver for your NICs. Right now you are using the one in kernel and it is not working. Try out the out-of-kernel Intel driver before going shopping.
