Some more commands that might prove useful (for us). The commands to run are 
in double quotes("), and what the info it gives us means in square brackets 
([]):

 "cat /etc/iftab"
 [Contains details of any interface mapping (MAC address -> Interface name)]

 "cat /var/run/network/ifstate"
 [Contains details of what interfaces Ubuntu thinks are currently active]

 "/sbin/ifconfig -a"
 [Gives details of all network interfaces the machine can see]

Note: That's ifconfig, not ipconfig (yes, f instead of p).
