eth0 and eth1 are improperly configured [Solved]

*Interfaces solved by reassigning Mac addresses for both interfaces and reflecting those changes in rc.conf

DHCP is no longer working for me and my HP Mini-1125nr netbook is no longer able to get online via ifplugd.  This adds to my ongoing battle with Broadcom-wl (I installed it from the AUR) and Arch wireless in general.  It seems my interfaces are not setup correctly.  I'm using the wiki and google, but not winning the war.  At boot network fails and declares

wlan0: unknown interface: no such device

current rc.conf chunks (see my previous config which had working eth0 dhcp)

MOD_AUTOLOAD="no"
MODULES=(lib80211_crypt_tkip wl !b43 !ssb snd-hda-intel atl1)

eth0="dhcp"
wlan0="dhcp"
INTERFACES=(wlan0 eth0)

My NETWORKS is still default (main) as I have not setup a network manager beyond ifplugd

DAEMONS=(syslog-ng hal network netfs @crond @alsa @ifplugd)

ifconfig -a                       note: wlan missing and eth0 has no inet addr or mask

Re: eth0 and eth1 are improperly configured [Solved]

By setting modules to autoload in rc.conf I now have access to wired internet by executing "dhcpcd" after boot.  My wired internet is now listed as eth1 and eth0 is considered wireless when it should be wlan0.

You can name the interfaces whatever you like:
