We're drifting towards questions that are more appropriate for debian-user.

For this you don't need/want modconf. If you want to do the brute-force
method, which has some drawbacks:
# cd /lib/modules/`uname -r`/
Depending on you kernel version you will have modules in net/ or
# mopdprobe *
Or install the package libdetect0, which, depending on your hardware, will
detect your card and tell you what module to use.
