How about (a non-auto entry from my interfaces file):
# wlan0 -- Get DHCP from Comcast and tidy up a bit
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
comcastRoutes.sh is a shell script that fixes the routing table and
resolv.conf to set the default and DNS back to non-comcast IPs and to
enter some routes -- I use this for big downloads from the mirrors, etc.
"ifup wlan0" or "ifconfig wlan0 up" bring it up. And they don't turn off
my T1 Ethernet connection.
