    Default

    You need to have correct device driver loaded (module) for your NIC. Use lspci command to find out more information about card.
    Code:
    lspci
    See this url about lspci: http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/linux-...i-devices.html

    Once device identified, you can load the driver (located in /lib/ directory). Use insmod or modprobe command to install the driver
    Code:
    modprobe driver-name

    Default Fix by editing /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules

    You probably need to edit /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules so that the ethernet card you want to use is assigned to the ethX device you want it on.
