No eth1 wireless

I seem to have corrupted system-config-network while playing with
firestarter. I've since gone back to the default Fedora firewall
(system-config-securitylevel). I see two devices in the Devices tab:
eth0 (Type: Ethernet), which is active, and eth1 (Type: Wireless),
which is inactive. When I try to activate eth1, I get this
inappropriate error:
Determining IP information for eth1... failed; no link present.  Check cable?

Why does it think that there should be a cable? Before rebooting I was
getting this error:
When I try to activate eth1 (wireless):
Determining IP information for eth1...dhclient(4733) is already
running - exiting.

How can I start eth1? Note that SELinux is set to Permissive.

Thanks in advance.
