    Welcome to the forum.

    Yes, you can use the drivers from Intel. PHY means Physical Layer device. That is the ethernet controller you need the driver for.
    I have the same controller and that is the driver I use.

    I have had issues from time to time with the Ethernet drivers and couldn't install them. The issue i found, wasn't related to the PHY itself but the RAM. I took out the modules and cleaned them thoroughly with cotton sticks and ethanol and reinstalled them. The issue related to the PHY disappeared and also the issue with sudden turn off, which i thought was a thermal issue but it was just a bad RAM connection.

    I hope this helps somebody out there..
