Hi, and thanks for your report (even if the best way is filing a proper bug report in the BTS: https://www.debian.org/Bugs/).

They work most of the > time, but not always. A few things that come to mind: - what if there's an extra cable plugged on to a NIC that isn't the one you PXE-booted from? There might be something going on that could be related to the boot method, like a faulty initialization somewhere because there was already some traffic on that interface. - what if you try to unload and reload the igb module? I've just checked that modprobe -r $foo and modprobe $foo work just fine from a console in the installer context. Mraw, KiBi.
