In /etc/modutils/airport, I have:

post-install airport /etc/network/airport-config

In /etc/network/airport-config, I have:

ifconfig eth0 up
iwconfig eth0 rate auto
iwconfig eth0 essid any

And of course in /etc/network/interfaces:

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

Change yours to eth1, then run 'update-modules' as root.  You may find
'man update-modules' and 'man modules.conf' informative.
