      "ifconfig -a" will list all the interfaces present on the systems - what
      is the output from that command? Also, what is the output from
      "iwconfig" (you may have to install wireless-tools to get that command)?

        root@snug:~$ iwconfig
        lo no wireless extensions.

        eth0 no wireless extensions.

        and /etc/network/interfaces shows:

        # /etc/network/interfaces
        # configuration file for ifup(8), ifdown(8)
        #
        # The loopback interface
        auto lo
        iface lo inet loopback
        #
        # The interface used by default during boot
        auto eth0
        # Automatically generated from /etc/default/sysconf
        # address, netmask and gateway are ignored for 'dhcp'
        # but required for 'static'
        iface eth0 inet dhcp
        address 192.168.1.77

        iface wlan0 inet dhcp
        pre-up /sbin/ifconfig $IFACE up
        pre-up cp /etc/resolv.conf /tmp/r
        wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
        wpa-driver wext
        wireless-key secret
        wireless-essid plumternet
        up cp /tmp/r /etc/resolv.conf


        auto eth1
        iface eth1 inet dhcp
        pre-up /sbin/ifconfig $IFACE up
        pre-up cp /etc/resolv.conf /tmp/r
        wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
        wpa-driver wext
        wireless-key secret
        wireless-essid plumternet
        up cp /tmp/r /etc/resolv.conf

        so, device isn't being registered correctly maybe?
