I think what you're looking for is /etc/modutils/aliases
Adding a couple of lines like this should work...

alias eepro100 eth0
alias prism wan0

That's just an example (I have no idea what a real wireless module name is
since I've never dealt with 802.11 before, but you get the idea). Just
substitute the appropriate module names and you should be good to go.

I do have a prism card, but I don't know the name of my wired nic. How would I find that out?

Currently there is nothing in the /etc/modutils/aliases with regard to my network cards
