To all gentoo users, AirPort is well supported in linux and appears has a 
regular ethX device when the driver is in the kernel (after inserting the 
airport module, or after boot in case of built in support).

Ola' Joao!

Se tiveres o airport no kernel, e tens o eth1, e' porque supostamente o AirPort 
esta' suportado, caso nao tenhas o eth1, faz modprobe airport (quando o suporte 
para o AirPort e' feito por modulo, como no meu caso).

Basicamente, mal tenhas o eth1 faz:
ifconfig eth1 up
iwconfig eth1
se o iwconfig eth1 funcionar, o AirPort esta' a funcionar, podes usa-lo como 
qualquer outra placa de rede, e fazer por exemplo /etc/init.d/net.eth1 start
ou entao usar o
iwconfig eth1 XXX
para configuracoes especificas de placas de rede sem fios.
por exemplo, este e' o meu script para usar wifi em casa:

modprobe airport
iwconfig eth1 essid "casa de pobres" nick miguel key off
/etc/init.d/net.eth1 start
ip -6 route del default

tenho este script como em /root/bin e corro-o quando quero-me ligar 
por wireless em casa.
Se a tua rede sem fios usa WEP, e' so' meteres a chave asseguir ao "key" no 
comando do iwconfig.
faz man iwconfig para mais detalhes.

Se precisas de te ligar a uma VPN wifi (como no caso das universidades) em 
linux, ainda nao sei fazer pois nao tentei!
