Thanks, That was it! I used to have eth0 and eth1 (ethernet and
wireless) Now I have eth1 and eth2!
I need to go through all the docs to really understand how to deal with
networking. Does anybody have any good suggestions as to how to set up a
gui to deal with networking? I would like to achieve the following:
Let the users monitor all the network interfaces
Scan for and connect to various wireless access points
turn on/off the radio card when not in use
