wireless lan config
A little bit off-topic, but I guess a number of people would be interested.
I'm getting quite bored having to type iwconfig parameters everytime I
reboot one of my wireless connected machines, and although a script
could do the trick, I was interested in the debian way of doing.
I have the /etc/network/interfaces with my eth1 (airport card)
configured (IP config is correctly restored on boot). What are the
options to this file to set ESSID, NICK and MODE for my station ? Or is
there another file that does take care of this ?
The card seems to remember the network ID (ESSID) but not the rest of
Hope somebody can straighten this for me, the documentation is rather
scarce on this one.

Do I really need the pcmcia package to use the airport card fully then ?
