I am running a Lenovo T420 (don't know if that matters) with Fedora24 installed. I've looked around the forum and can't find an explanation on how to change Ethernet and wireless card names in this version of fedora. Nothing I've tried from examples in older fedora versions have worked either. If you need any more info I will provide. Thank you for your time.

Wondering why you need to do that?

I switched from Ubuntu recently (wanted to try something new) and I still just cant get used to typing wlp3s0 in every time. Also for what ever reason it doesn't autofill the rest of the name when i start it and click tab (sorry if that is a stupid question but again I just switched from debian based distros).

Well, it is kind to get use to it.

I think you can rename it with a custom udev rule, but I don't recommend it. Instead, maybe we can find an easier way to do whatever it is that requires you to type it in... Maybe more elegant NetworkManager configs, or a simple script or alias to automate your repeated task.
