Thanks for the info, which explains the situation, certainly the naming 
convention.

The network I'm on at the moment hands out DHCP addresses.  But, sometimes,
I'll hard-code the IP address for the computer (with ifconfig:  ifconfig 
(eth0--but in this case) enx687f74158a8a 10.x.x.x netmask 255.255.255.0;
route add default gw 10.x.x.x).  Since this is a new install of Stretch,
I haven't been able to download the ifconfig package; and if I type ifup
enx687f74158a8a (or for my wireless card, wlp1s0), I get:  "unknown in-
terface.

So, I'm in between a rock and a hard place (I can't configure the interface,
and I can't connect to a network to download the package that will let me
configure the interface).  In case it would be of value, here's my lspci:

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
