[ubuntu] Totally screwed up networking 12.10

http://ubuntuforums.org – OK…So I guess I like the old days of ethX. Some of you may know what happened from there. Anayway…I have a Ubuntu 12.10 server built so I’d like to recover if at all possible. I had one NIC in the system and it was named P4P1. So OK whatever. I had to add a dual port NIC for more connections, long story, and they had names P1P1 and P2P1. I’m a little old school and this is my first Ubuntu build, I’m coming from FC12. Anyway I wanted to get the old ethX names back. I read a forum post about removing biosdevnames. So I removed that package. Have not seen the network since. Occas (Hardware)
