Re: renamed eth0 to eth1, why?



Hi,

I experienced a similar situation a while ago. In my case the problem
was that the driver changed the MAC address of the device (it was a
bug in r8169 driver), udev simply detected a "new" network card and,
to distinguish it from the old one, it automatically performed the
device name change.

I don't know if this is the case for you, but if so, to get back the
old MAC address I had to power-cycle the card (it required removing
the network cable from the card too).

/Josep
