New motherboard, no network




After many years, my faithful ASUS motherboard died, so I've replaced it
with a Gigabyte GA-F2A68HM-HD2. t booted up fine from my existing disk
set into Jessie, but networking is inoperative. The board has an
on-board network interface, plus an extra PCI network board. Neither
seem to be working, although they are recognised by lspci -v:

/etc/udev/70-persistent-net.rules presumably contains the addresses for
the old motherboard:

So, how do I get the network active?
