Yes, I had begun to suspect that enp134s0 was the wired connection. 

For what it's worth the entry I have in /sys/class/net is enp134s0 which is a link that points to ../../devicespci0000:000000:00:1c.5/0000:86:00.0/net/enp134s0

I don't have lspci, it says command not found.  I assume it's part of a blfs package I haven't gotten too.

Is there any value to booting with the arch cd and looking at what is there?
