I've changed my PCI wireless cards several times, and the wlan# interface numbers keep increasing by one. To be more specific, the first wifi interface name was wlan0, after removing that card and installing new one to same slot, the interface name became wlan1 after another one it became wlan2 and so on.

I've been wondering how to clean this cache and make the last connected driver wifi interface name wlan0 ?

Thank you
