How to Bring up and configure the Wireless interface during boot up?

Dear all,

I have FC 7 installed in my PC at office.We have a wireless network here.I use a USB Wi-Fi adapter with the Zydas chipset The Zydas driver that comes with the FC-7 distro is having some range issues.So i downloaded the latest driver and compiled it to create the driver module.

Now i need to remove the USB Wi-Fi adapter,rmmod the existing driver, insmod the new driver module and insert the USB Wi-Fi adapter,configure the Wi-Fi network from command prompt everytime i boot my machine.Is there any boot script using which i can do these things everytime i boot my machine.If so,how to proceed with.

Need help from you guys..

Well, one thing you could do is blacklist the old module, so that it doesn't load on boot.
$ sudo echo "blacklist old_wifi_driver_module" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
And then, add the new driver module to the kernel modules list to load on boot.
$ sudo echo "new_wifi_driver_module" >> /etc/modules
Let me know how that works.
