Hey Guys,

whenever i use ifconfig in the terminal, there is no eth0 like there should be, and i am not able to see my IP-Address. If i use normal wifi, should there be eth0? And if yes, why isn't it showing up in my ifconfig?

My local network "lo" is displayed in ifconfig, but if use ifconfig eth0 it says, that there is no device found..

I am using Fedora 24, with Dual Boot (Win10). If you need any further information, please ask me.

Thanks in advance!!

Here my interfeace is wlp3s0:

wlp3s0: flags=4163<up,broadcast,running,multicast> mtu 1500 inet netmask broadcast inet6 2003:85:ee33:e500:b77b:9dd8:aefd:f68f prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x0<g< p="">

But cant be my real IP Address, because if i go to whatsmyip it says something else on every other device connected to the router.
