If you are doing a ifup eth0 you are not doing a auto but a manual
Before you do ifup eth0, do a iwconfig eth0 and you should see an
essid and its ap. My understanding is that the module (airport in

to be selecetd. iwconfig eth0 essid selected-essid.
I modprobe airport but dont see any ap identified with iwconfig.
