Most modern distros have a mapping of MAC address to device name.
Usually something like /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules

Since two interfaces are shown it may be that only one interface is
configured for dhcp and it is not the one connected to the modem.  Try

What distro are you using?

Run the following command from a terminal.  Do it a second time and
replace eth0 with eth3.

grep eth0 /var/log/dmesg

Here is what I get on my laptop.

[    1.032604] 0000:00:19.0: eth0: (PCI Express:2.5GB/s:Width x1)
[    1.032606] 0000:00:19.0: eth0: Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network Connection
[    1.032630] 0000:00:19.0: eth0: MAC: 7, PHY: 8, PBA No: 1004ff-0ff
[   17.960553] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth0: link is not ready
