For the NIC, depending on if you have the PAE kernel ("uname -r"), use the kmod-igb or kmod-igb-PAE drivers from here.
Thanks for the help Nick. I installed kmod-igb-2.4.13-1.clearos.i686.rpm as recommended with the same result. As soon as bandwidth/qos is enabled the box hard locks. I have to boot up with the network cables disconnected and disable the service or it will completely lock again. Additional information as follows:

Looks like the updated igb driver installed and is loaded but still the same issues -- hard lock on enabling Bandwidth/QOS service and the internal NIC still auto-negotiates to 10Mbps on a 1Gbps port (should be gigabit.) I tried a different gigabit switch to rule out the possibility of a bad port/switch. The external NIC does work at 100Mbps as supported by my modem.
I'm reaching the point of giving up on this solution on this box. I'll either have to come up with a different software package or see if I can find another dual NIC box to use as my gateway and pray all the hardware is supported by Clear/Centos.
