Did you check lspci or read /var/log/messages after reboot.  
Those give pcmcia devices.  Try with newer kernel if you have new
device.  (woody shall be good.  It is by all means stable.  Just make
sure to adjust /etc/apt/sources.list during install time to make sure
you get right archive until its release.)

If you want to be client of DHCP serviced network, use dhclient in
woody.  (I forgot what for potato.  Something like dhcp-client)
