How to bring up the wireless network interface on first boot up?
 
Hi, I have Kanotix (Debian sid based) on my notebook which has wifi, and I would like it to have wifi ready once it booted up into KDE. Which config file should I edit. Currently I need to issue command

ifconfig ath0 up

then

dhclient

in order to have everything setup and ready to surf the web.
Currently I noticed during boot up that it has issue dhclient, but failed to connect since ifconfig ath0 up is not yet issued, so I would like to inject the later command into the boot process which I don't know how to do.

Thanks.

Edit "/etc/network/interfaces" add/change these lines for the ath0 section:

auto ath0
iface ath0 inet dhcp
pre-up modprobe ath_pci
post-down rmmod ath_pci
