Great, now we're getting somewhere. Let's forget, for a while, the
abstract discussion about interfaces names (sorry, guys ;)).

Can you please copy and paste the contents of the file
/etc/network/interfaces here? This is probably some mistake there.

Also, Carl can you test if booting the LiveCD makes it work properly
out of the box?  

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth1
iface eth1 inet dhcp

auto eth2
iface eth2 inet dhcp

auto ath0
iface ath0 inet dhcp

iface wlan0 inet dhcp

auto wlan0

iface eth0 inet dhcp
wireless-essid Wireless

auto eth0


according to this there are no linux drivers and the other links goto
pdf so even windows drivers are missing.

according to ths device its revsion R but the device I have is pictured
as DWL 120E
