interfaces, and whether both use dhcp or either uses static IP.
In my case my wired pc card is eth0, and wireless (older SMC 2632W) uses
wlan-ng with wlan0 interface. So I could set parameters for each in their
respective ifcfg files.
If either your wired or wireless use eth0, there is something in
/etc/pcmcia that can be used to set different parameters based on MAC
address (possibly network.opts or wireless.opts).
