Thanks; I tried using those names and got this:
# ifconfig wlan1 up
# wlan1: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device
# ifconfig eth1 up
# eth1: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device

lspci -k shows the modules e1000e and iwlwifi in its list.

lsmod | sort shows an associated module name for each devices, except these two:
Network controller: Intel Corporation Device 08b2 (rev 83)
        Subsystem: Intel Corporation Device c270
Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation Device 155a (rev 04)
        Subsystem: Lenovo Device 2214

Maybe I haven't resewarched far enough...
