One of the interfaces work and the other not?

Have you tried:
  a) configuring eth0 only and connect both cables
  b) ping some external IP: ping IP  (don't use -I)
  c) remove cable from 1st interface
  c) does the 2sn interface lit up?
  d) is the ping still working?

It could be a case of a dual ethernet card working as a failover, so if
1st interface works, then the second isn't needed.

This probably happens due to both interfaces being in the same logical
and physical net...
