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:
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.
