View Full Version : [ubuntu] 3 Nics...but auto numbering skipped eth1 - why?

New to Ubuntu and running desktop version. I have 3 Nic's (one o/b 2-pci). When I ifconfig I get info on eth0, eth2, eth3 and lo. What happened to eth1 and how do I configure eth2 to be eth1.

BTW if I ifconfig eth1 I get "error fetching interface information: Device not found"

Does sudo lshw -C network show anything for eth1?
Another place to look is /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules
