Yes, but I don't see how you need pppoe on the wired connection and not the

No, I'm telling you. :-)

The thing is, I don't believe you need to...

Then what's your problem?  All along you've been telling us you couldn't
access the Internet.  If you can, it's a simple matter of automating the
method you're using.  In this case, probably just uncommenting the wlan0
lines in /etc/network/interfaces and changing wlan0 to ath0.

No, it has nothing to do with anything.  All the search domain does (I
already explained this) is add ".no-domain-set.bellcanada" to the end of
any DNS query your system makes to an unqualified domain (e.g., "foo" as
opposed to "foo.bar").  Which means that, in all the cases you showed, it
does nothing useful (queries to unqualified domains would time out in half
the time, though, if you didn't have it at all).
