This is finally driving me nuts: My wireless interface is wlan0_rename/wifi0 (?). How do I change that? More importantly, why does it exist in two states and why the "_rename?"

Thanks, and sorry if the answer is buried in a thread somewhere.

I had a similar problem, my wlan0 was called eth1 for some reason..

Didnt find a solution, it had something to do with udev iirc..

I wouldn't mind so much, except that MRXVT goes into Greek mode every time I press "Fn," so underscores are REALLY annoying. There must be a way to turn Greek mode off, but I haven't found it yet.

I just commented out line 15 in file /etc/udev/rules.d/z25_persistent-net.rules

"SUBSYSTEM=="net", DRIVERS=="?*", ATTRS{address}=="MAC Address", NAME="eth3""

The device is not mapped to eth3 anymore. I have now 2 devices wifi0 and wlan0.
Hope it helps,
