    change id device when adding new NIC


    hi all.....

    currently in my PC has 2 NIC, we call this eth0 & eth1.
    eth1 was damaged and I want to change it with a new one.
    the problem comes where new NIC detected as eth2, not eth1.
    this is a little bit problem, because the settings in proxy & firewall should be changed to.
    how can I change eth2 to eth1?

    thx for your help.

    You have to edit a UDEV configuration file, in my Gentoo box it is /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules, might be slightly different name for your Linux.
