Network Adapter ID and physical location

Hi experts,

How do I know which physical interface on the back of my computer relates to which adapter listed in Windows (without having to unplug each one and note which one shows as disconnected).

For example, I have a server with 4 x Broadcom network adapters, which Windows shows as Broadcom NetExtreme II, NetExtreme II #2, NetExtreme II #3, NetExtreme II #4.

Logically I would expect the first NIC on the left at the back of my server to be number 1, and the next to be #2 and so on....can anyone confirm this?

Sounds like an obvious question but I can't find any info through googling and I want to be 100% sure this is how it works.

Cheers
