Look at /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules

Create a similar file, with the mac id of the card you want a specific
device id as ATTR(address ... etc and NAME="eth1"

Before you do that -- chances are you have already another device
configured to run as eth1, so look at the other files / other lines in
that file and see which device is configured to work as eth1.

Thank you all for the helpful replies. It's all working fine again :)
