Disclaimer: I am not asking for help; I am just sharing my experiences

I don't have an Access Point - instead, I mainly use ethernet for
connectivity.  Way back with Joyride builds, sometimes it was the
ethernet instead of the radio that got assigned as interface 'eth0'.
For consistency, I ended up manually editing  70-persistent-net.rules
to ensure that my ethernet got assigned the 'eth1' interface name.

The F14 developers' build assigns the radio as interface 'wlan0'.
Thereby, it is my ethernet that gets assigned interface name 'eth0'.
