I have not removed udev from the laptops I was having wireless configuration problems with but I just fixed my problem after discovering that either udev or hotplug or something was no longer calling my PCMCIA ethernet card eth0 and my wireless card eth1 but calling whichever one was plugged in eth0. I edited /etc/network/interfaces to reflect that and have my wireless back.

I am now trying to understand hotplug and ifplugd so I can plug either or both cards in and have everything work. I discovered that Debian Reference is much more complete than the last time I looked (a long time ago) and should help.
