How does this compare to the output of ifstat in iPXE ?
And from linux what does lspci -nn | grep 'Ether\|Net' show ?
Which iPXE binary are you using, is it snp.efi or ipxe.efi or something

The possible explanations I can think of is that
1. drivers for one or more of the nics are not available in iPXE
2. the driver that is used in iPXE only finds first port of the nics (I
think this is the case with UNDI, but that is due to limitations in UNDI
itself and is not something that iPXE can change)
3. Combination of the above
