Xandros wired/wireless networking config

I have Xandro Linux 2.0.  As root, I can use the control panel to manually enable either my wired or wireless network connection, but it seems only one can be enabled at a time.  If I enable both eth0 (wired) and eth1(wireless), only my wired connection works.  If I disable eth0, then eth1 (wireless) works fine.

I want to be able to have both automatically.  i.e. If I unplug my cat5, I want to be able to use my wireless connection without having to do anything... is this possible?

I recently rendered by setup unusable and had to reinstall.  After stepping through the Xandros network connections wizard, things just worked the way I wanted... don't know why it didnt work the first time.
