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.
