    Everything looks fine, your computer should automatically connect no boot providing it is connected to a dhcp router. if you are static addresses then you will need to modify /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf.

    If you are a standard user and want a gui program to manager the network interfaces then I recommend installing wicd from the /extra/ directory of the installation DVD.

  • I second mfillpot's wicd suggestion. I use it even on my wired networks. It's a much simpler network app than the generics included in most distributions.
