VERY nice hint - jotted away for future :)
That should hopefully solve the OP's problem. If not, the next step I
would personally take is to:
1) determine which ifnames are which type
2) drop into a terminal and use ip (or ifconfig still?) to manually
configure each eth dev, one by one, with a static address, and see
if ping works from another host;
if not work, then "ifconfig down" or "ip link set $DEVNAME down"
and try the next one...
This way also means that specific commands are either failing or
succeeding - I know it's lower level, but can make debugging ones
problem a little easier from my oh-so-incredibly-humble experiences
