Have you cleared the firewall rules since trying to rename it to lan and/or wan? If not, try this to clear them. You'll have to do this as root. so put a sudo in front of the commands.

Code: [Select]
iptables -F
iptables -X
iptables -t nat -F
iptables -t nat -X
iptables -t mangle -F
iptables -t mangle -X
iptables -P INPUT ACCEPT
iptables -P FORWARD ACCEPT
iptables -P OUTPUT ACCEPT

Also I read this howto as renaming eth0 and eth1 to WAN and LAN respectively to mean those are "people friendly names" and don't actually rename eth0 and eth1.

I think that is the case. I think the only place the human friendly names are seen is on the dashboard. Elsewhere the interfaces are labeled with their real names. In any case, I've never had a problem from renaming.

As I look at it, you may be correct. However, on another note, when I changed mine, the system crashed as well. So, I guess we'll have to wait on clarification from the Ebox staff as the manual is also unclear on it.

Which version of eBox?
